  1. 10 Online Passwords to Avoid
  2. Don’t Let a Bad Password Cripple You • Don’t let one bad, repetitive (used among multiple accounts) password lead to someone hacking into many accounts – Differentiate passwords between accounts (especially social vs. sensitive personal ones i.e. online banking) – One strong password is better than several weak ones
  3. Don’t Make Your Password Any of These… • Your partner, child, or pet’s name, possibly followed by a 0 or 1 • The last 4 digits of your social security number • 123 or 1234 or 123456 • “Password” • Your city, college, or sports team name
  4. …Or These 6. Date of birth – yours, your partner’s or your child’s 7. “God” 8. “Letmein” 9. “Money” 10. “Love”
  5. So, Have You Used These? • About a fifth of you are probably realizing you use these types of passwords – Don’t worry, we all do at some point • If this is the case, change your passwords ASAP • If you’ve been using a generally weak password, change them fast
  6. Do You Have a Backup Plan? • Whether it’s before, during, or after changing your password, also establish a really good backup plan • Backups prevent against any single point of failure including: – Accidental deletion – Account hack – Server downtime – Missing documents during eDiscovery
