With all the websites and apps we use that require us to update our passwords frequently, a lot of us go for simple ones that are easy to remember. But it turns out, this also makes it easy for hackers to figure out, raising the risk of our sensitive information being compromised.

“To stay safe online, you need secure passwords. The more unique a password, the harder it will be for others to break it,” explains privacy expert Jason Wise. “In short, you need to avoid the most common passwords and the most obvious ones.”

  • He advises against using your date of birth, the names of people close to you, sports teams, cities or food, as these are extremely common passwords that are easy to guess.
  • According to Wise and other experts, using a password generator to create longer, harder-to-guess passwords is the best way to keep your information secure.
  • If you’re using one of the most popular passwords, Wise urges you to change it immediately.
