Duh. The easiest way to stop hackers is with real passwords.



One of the most personal online violations that can occur to anyone is getting hacked. It could be a personal attack such as a Facebook account, on which 600k successful hacks are achieved daily. It could be something more general such as a database hack that exposes personal information. It could be much, much worse.

With all of the security measures out there and counter-hacking attempts, many systems and accounts can be easily secured by having a strong password. There are plenty of hacks that can hit a system or an account that have nothing to do with front door password access, so there’s no reason to give hackers another easy point of entry by having a password that doesn’t take much time for a hacking script to break.

This infographic by OnlineCollegeCourses.com breaks down the stats behind hacking and reiterates the point that “password” is not a very good password.
