❏ 96% of common password combinations can be cracked by hacker tools in less than a second.

These statistics highlight the frequent occurrence of password theft or leaks in our daily lives. However, many people continue to manage their passwords in highly risky ways, despite being aware of the dangers. According to the same report:

🆖 89% of people know that using the same password for different services poses a security risk, yet only 12% actually create unique passwords for different services.
🆖 6 out of 10 people admit to reusing passwords.

Weak passwords, use some personal information that’s easy to guess, or reused passwords...
All of these are bad password habits, do they sound familiar to you?

Adopting strong account protection measures can be inconvenient, and breaking bad habits can be challenging, making it difficult to maintain good password practices. Often, it isn't until we experience a significant data breach or password theft that we decide to change our habits.

But it's never too late!

🔑 Use strong passwords (make them long and complex, combining numbers and symbols; experts suggest at least 16 characters)
🔑 Avoid using easily guessed or obtained personal information as passwords (birthdays, ID numbers, etc.)
🔑 Enable two-factor authentication
🔑 Do not share or reuse passwords
🔑 Do not store passwords in insecure places (a post-it under your desk)
㊙️ If you find it hard to remember long and complex passwords, use a trusted password manager!
