"123456" tops list of worst passwords again
By Allie Coyne

'Password' steady in second.


Hope nobody here is that stupid! Or that stupid they sign on with their real email that might have their real name in it. This is why yahoomail, gmail and hotmail etc were invented. Don’t use a fictitious email addy like “fuck@you.cum” (you can enter that as your email, believe it or not, but if you need help or want to change your password you are out of luck.

I use a combination of weird words, mixed capitals, symbols and a number or two. Never the same on different sites.

Yeah yeah I believe that :bgrin It doesn’t hurt to remind members to be a bit careful about passwords.

There was someone who was a member here, the other PA and OzPol. He also had a hotmail account.

His password was skippy.

Of course, IQ hacked that, even hacked his hotmail addy so he could see what the new password was. Hence the real name of the idiot using “skippy” as his password got posted on PA. The idiot thinks it was me did it, thick or what?
