Password security information.





A security password must comply with the following minimum rules:

Contain a non-zero and unequal number of lowercase letters, uppercase letters, and numbers.
Not to be pronounceable as a word and therefore not appearing in a dictionary. A person with fugitive access to a password will often need some time to memorize it for before being able to write it down, so it will be more difficult to memorize H2uTyf4lP1 than 253 rue du PARC which nevertheless comply the rule N ° 1.

Have at least 8 characters.
Choosing a password and preserving it are things that should not be taken lightly.

From a survey carried out by Ciao Surveys at the request of McAfee, it appears that users don't worry too much about passwords. One in four European users is therefore at risk of being a victim to online fraud or identity theft. The most commonly used password appears to be the name of the dog or cat.

Just under a quarter of respondents simply use the same password for all of their online accounts, and 42% never change their password. Almost a third of survey respondents choose passwords of up to six characters over and over again, and almost a quarter (22%) only use letters. These are worrisome answers since cyber criminals who specialize in stealing the identity of others are greatly facilitated and often only have to get hold of a single password.

The most common password seems to be her pet's, followed by a hobby or mom's maiden name. And it is precisely this type of information that we often find publicly on social media. It would therefore be useful to consider the use of more original and less easily identifiable passwords.

The top 10 most chosen passwords in Europe:
1. Name of domestic animal
2. A hobby
3. Mother's maiden name
4. The date of birth of a family member
5. His own date of birth
6. The name of the partner
7. His own name
8. Favorite football club
9. Favorite color
10. The name of the first school
