All about password theft
Hacking a password is a common tactic used by the ‘bad actors’ to compromise a person’s information, access their device, and/or use the data for further attacks.

But did you know, that the first computer password was developed in 1960, while the first ‘hack’ of password happened in 1962 – in just 2 years? And since then, login credentials continue to be a target amongst the hacker community.

Experts say that passwords are hacked because they are weak and contain a common set of words such as America, 123456, and iloveyou. Additionally, some people reuse the same password across all web services and increase the risk of attack.

Here, are some tips to help you create a strong password.
  • Use a combination of words with numbers.
  • Combine 2, 3, and even 4 partial words to make a strong password. For example, connect Diamond, Blog, and Fan to make ‘Diamblofan.’
  • Replace a few words with numbers and symbols. For example, changing the word password to p@ssw0rd.
  • Use a minimum of 12 characters.
  • Use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters.
  • Change your password every 30 – 90 days.
  • Although not entirely safe, can use password managers to remember the unique and strong passwords.
Enhancing security is essential, especially if you are withholding personal information, photographs, financial and banking credentials, and other sensitive data on the digital platform. Unfortunately, no single security protocol is foolproof and as we see technology grow – the hacking groups also become more innovative and find advanced methodologies to attack the internet users.

In the Infographic below, let’s take a look at the past history and the predicted future of passwords and its theft!
