Is yours on the list?

Staying secure online is often taken for granted by some. This proves true when creating passwords for your online accounts. While passwords are usually recommended to be alphanumeric with some special characters thrown in, not everyone is keen on remembering such complicated passwords, resulting in a password that can be easily guessed.

It may not be a big deal at first, but once someone is able to guess your password to your online bank account for example, the consequences can be dangerous.
