Maybe this sounds quite ironic but it is truth that the most commonly used password is “password”. The password does not serve the purpose of a password. Check out ThreadWatch for the top 10 commonly used passwords online.

If you are using easy-to-guess password (e.g: dictionary word, birthday, name, phone number, IC, etc), please install the SecurePassword Generator firefox plugin or use the online password generator, if you are not Firefox user.
Then, jot down your passwords and keep it in a safe place. Yes, we have been told never to write down our passwords, but security experts from Microsoft and Apple said otherwise. So, listen to experts.
