If you see your password here, you should change it - the 25 most used passwords online

And here is another friendly reminder for enhanced online security from Mogo:

Change your passwords regularly!

Here is the list of the 25 most common online passwords:

  • password
  • 123456
  • 12345678
  • 1234
  • qwerty
  • 12345
  • dragon
  • pussy
  • baseball

  • shadow
  • master
  • jennifer

Be honest, do you see yours here? Take a little effort (and pride) and make the switch to something a bit tougher!

With the latest password breech of LinkedIn (in addition to many other high profile pass-jacks of the past year), it’s a good idea to keep changing things up, and follow a few simple rules for password creation:

  • don’t use your birthday, or easily found answers about yourself
  • don’t use the same password for all of your accounts
  • combine numbers, capitalization and symbols whenever possible
  • set yourself reminders to change things up

Basically, look at those tips like locking the door to your car while leaving it in a parking lot. If you make it a little harder for unscrupulous characters, they’ll move onto the next target that didn’t exercise precautions.

Safe online living will save you money and enhance your security. Take a few minutes to reset your passwords, and avoid the headache of hacks, identity theft and fraudulent charges.
