It is extremely dangerous to use weak passwords and if any of your passwords are listed below we strongly urge you to defend yourself from unauthorised entries.

It seems like everybody is practicing their counting or reminding themselves the function of a password!

You wouldn’t leave your front door unlocked at home, so why should you equip your accounts with such minimal security considering the information a password can behold.

What could go wrong with a bit of creativity and mixing symbols with letters?
