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 all (hopefully) know that your password shouldn't be "password" and that your last name is similarly obvious, but when finding the balance between easy to remember and secure, are we typing too close to the line?

Check out this list of the top 20 worst passwords to use, according to SplashData:
  • 123456
  • password
  • 12345678
  • qwerty
  • 12345
  • 123456789
  • letmein
  • 1234567
  • football
  • iloveyou
  • admin
  • welcome
  • monkey
  • login
  • abc123
  • starwars
  • 123123
  • dragon
  • passw0rd
  • master
If any of these look a little too familiar, you may want to get a bit more creative to protect your online identity.
