This article covers the five most common mistakes when creating passwords.


This article by Meg Watson, writing for ABC Everyday, interviewed security researcher Troy Hunt regarding passwords, and he lists the five following points:
  1. People make the mistake of going too simple. Don't use a single word; use a passphrase.
  2. Don't use personal information for a password, date of birth, pet's or child's names, etc.
  3. Don't use the same password for everything or re-use a previous one. It's easier to remember, but it's also easier for a hacker to access all your accounts.
  4. We don't need to remember a password; we just need access to it. A Password Manager easily achieves this.
  5. Don't change your password all the time—but change if you suspect that your accounts have been compromised.
