Is your password too easy to hack?
Check out these overused combinations
It's 2018 and you should lock up your online platforms like you would your house. Following numerous data breaches from social media sites and companies, it is time for everyone to get smart about their digital security.
The official Twitter Support account tweeted a warning to all 330 million users saying, “We recently found a bug that stored passwords unmasked in an internal log.” Though there was no clear sign of misuse, the company highly encouraged everyone to change their passwords for Twitter and any other site where they used the same combination.
We recently found a bug that stored passwords unmasked in an internal log. We fixed the bug and have no indication of a breach or misuse by anyone. As a precaution, consider changing your password on all services where you’ve used this password. https://t.co/RyEDvQOTaZ— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) May 3, 2018
