An attacker who wants to break into one of your accounts manually might first try passwords like your middle name, your birth date, or other keywords that are very much related to you somehow. If that doesn’t works, the attacker might use a program which uses dictionary attack, brute force or rainbow tables.

Nice infographic on password breaches. Well i use lastpass to generate and store secure passwords, saves a lot of hassle. But still lastpass passwords need to be protected with a strong password.

This topic is really interesting on my part since I was a victim of hacking before. I used to have the same password on my fb, my email, paypal and even on payoneer debit card.. All of them had the same password which was tend to got easily invade and crack by those hacker. It took me month before I recover everything but the worse scenario was that.. that person emailed and message every person listed on my personal email and facebook account. After that incident and learning from being lousy on my personal account, I get more wiser and vigilant especially when dealing or buying through online… And stop using the same passwords in all of your account!!

Lastpass is a great tool. We can use it for free on browsers. But if you want to use it on mobile devices, you have to go for subscription though, with a small yearly fee.

Thank you for sharing these stats about password breach. It is right, the harder a password to remember, the harder it is to crack. On the other hand, there are cases when users forget their password because it is to complex to remember. So, make sure that you remember your password at all times.
