Make Sure Your Kids Are Not Using These Internet Passwords

Make Sure Your Kids Are Not Using These Internet Passwords via Babble

Kids should pick passwords that are unique to them.

With all the advice out there today about kids and Internet safety, there is one part of the equation that tends to go unspoken.

While experts talk about the many ways kids may become subject to predators and harmful material online, many forget to outline the basic tenets of using social networks and other websites safely. Picking a strong password and not giving it out to others is perhaps the number one rule in that department.

Consequently, there have been many instances of middle schoolers and teens stealing each other’s passwords and posting damaging things on another teen’s account.

Have you gone over the importance of picking a strong password with your child? It seems that the top 25 worst passwords have largely remained the same which means that people are repeating their mistakes and putting themselves at risk online.

Care to venture which password is the most used? Ask your child what he/she thinks it is?

Here are the top ten worst passwords:

1. password

2. 123456

3. 12345678

4. abc123

5. querty

6. monkey

7. letmein

8. dragon

9. 111111

10. baseball
