Change Your Password if it's This '90s Band

Of all the small things in life, picking a secure password is nothing to mess with.????But a bunch of people out there are clearly 90s music fans and Blink 182 sounded safe enough to use.????No kidding.????In the category of musical artist, the most hacked password is ‘Blink-182’, according to a new study from the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre.????The idea is that people think they’re slick because the password contains letters and numbers, according to Mashable.????Or, they’re just die-hard fans.????Blink-182’s bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus can’t seem to believe what he’s seeing and tweeted – “you guys!”??????CNN says the top 10 most common passwords included the usual suspects like “123456”, which was used by 23.2 million accounts!????Others tried to be sneaky and add a few more numbers, but 123456789 is still hackable, and 7.7 million accounts used that combo as a password.????Just to be safe, the security centre recommends using three “random but memorable” terms in a password.????Stuff that’s not easy to guess like a first name????More like, what’s my password again especially if you’re trying to use those tips and switch things up.
