Weak passwords are one of five easy ways for a hacker to gain access to an account. Did you know that 80% of all cyberattacks involve weak passwords and 55% of people utilize one password for all logins?
A hacker with a $300 dollar graphics card can run 420,000,000,000 simple lowercase password combinations in just over one minute.
Your best defense is to have a unique password for each account. If someone compromises your Facebook account, they then can’t use the same password to access your Amazon or brokerage account.
Also make sure you have special characters in your password. It should not be a dictionary word; make it gibberish.
