Use this password, your account can be hacked in just seconds Tech – 6 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – When choosing a password, you should avoid using a combination of numbers or letters below because it is not safe for your account.

As is known, passwords have become a crucial thing for securing digital assets in the current technological era. Therefore, make sure to always maintain the confidentiality of your password.


Unfortunately, people often create passwords that are too easy to guess. According to a survey by password management service NordPass, 83% of the 20 most used passwords can be cracked in less than 1 second.

This survey was conducted in 30 countries and collaborated with independent research institutions that specifically research cyber security. There is more than 3TB of data evaluated.

As a result, NordPass found the 10 most used passwords. In first place is ‘guest’. This password is used by more than 127,000 people in the US, quoted from BGRSunday (29/10/2023).

Apart from that, NordPass also said that many people use passwords with the names of fashion brands, films, artists, sports, and so on. For this reason, you should also avoid passwords like ‘tiffany’, ‘leon’, ‘u2’, and the like.

Tips for Creating Passwords that are Difficult to Crack

1. Create a long and complex password. 2. Get into the habit of creating a password of at least 12 characters that combines uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers and symbols.

3. Don’t use 1 password for many accounts. Get used to using 1 special password for each of your accounts. This will make it difficult for hackers to try to break into all your positive information.

4. Check your account regularly. Don’t let there be accounts that you rarely access but are still active. An account like this will make you unaware that it has been hacked.

5. Update your password regularly. Routinely change your password from time to time and do not repeat it with a password that has already been used.
