There are good passwords, and then there are passwords that are easy for hackers to crack.
But the worst password to use on the Internet is: “password.”
Many websites on the Internet require users to enter a password in order to use them. A password is a secret combination of letters, numbers and symbols.
“Hackers” are people who try to break into websites, in order to steal information or vandalize the site.
Hackers don’t guess at passwords. They use special computer programs that try tens of thousands of letter combinations very quickly to uncode a password.
When a person uses a simple password, the hacker can figure it out very quickly.
