Unfortunately, simple passwords are easier to remember and are used far more than complex ones. However, simple passwords also make work easier for hackers. The habits of using easy to remember passwords like 123456, password1, and the choice of using the same password for everything, will compromise the security of computers, devices, and accounts.
Entrepreneur in 2015 released a report stating that 3 out of 4 consumers duplicate their passwords, and 40 percent of those have had an account hacked, personal information stolen, or passwords stolen. Abacode has Secure Password Guidelines that when implemented will improve risky password habits and educate employees on the safest uses of passwords. This will go a long way in preventing cyber attacks.
