For example many people have their birthday, phone number or their license plate number as their password, which are one of the highly exploitable and worst passwords you could ever use.


Worst passwords are actually those passwords which can be easily guessed by a hacker. These may be simple names, common words, different languages, your lover’s name, birth date, license plate number, your cellphone number, your house or door number or any dictionary words. These are the most exploitable passwords on the internet. Never use these words as your password. Here are the lists of some of the worst passwords of 2011.


123456
123456789
qwerty
asdfgh
password
superman
abc123
iloveyou
monkey
111111
654321


If one of these is your passwords you do have the reason to worry, as security of your account might have been compromised. And if these are not your passwords then also you are not at all safe. Be sure your password is safe and secure.


Most effective way to create a secure password is to make by using a combination of lower case, upper case alphabets, symbols, and numbers. This combination can make strongest of the passwords. Never use the words or anything that are related to you. Most of the attacks uses the trial and error method that means they most will be based on your personal information. Always use strong passwords. Never share your password with any one, as most of the attacks are carried out by the person you know.


You should never keep the same password for all your accounts and always keep changing your password. This keep you off from the radar of the hackers.
