With the threat of Russian cyber attacks due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, it's now more important than ever to protect all of your electronic devices.
That means having a strong, secure password.
The mobile security firm Lookout.com. is out with its list of the 20 most common passwords found on the dark web..
The list ranges from simple number and letter sequences like “123456” and “Qwerty”, which are the first six letters of the top row of the keyboard, to easily typed phrases like “Iloveyou.”

If you use any of the above passwords for any of your online accounts, you'll probably want to swap them out for something more secure.
Cybersecurity experts recommend picking something longer than the minimum number of recommended characters and using uncommon characters like punctuation marks or other symbols.
Lookout also noted that the majority of people reuse passwords for multiple accounts, which is a practice you should avoid whenever possible.
They says if hackers can get into one of your accounts, you can at least make it harder for them to get into the rest of them.
