Internet users must face the dilemma of using strong passwords, but difficult to remember, or easy to remember, but also easy to hack, said a study carried out by Kaspersky Lab.

Users who prefer secure passwords, although they are not easy to keep in memory, 51 percent keep them unsafe, while 23 percent choose to write them down on some paper to prevent them from being lost along with the devices, although this It also puts the data at risk, since paper can get lost or fall into the wrong hands.

When losing a password, users encounter frustrations or stressful situations, according to the firm’s study on cybersecurity.

Thus, 38 percent of people fail to quickly restore a password when they need to enter any of their personal accounts online.

Those who decide to use strong passwords consider that the most important thing is to keep hackers away from online banking accounts (62 percent), paid applications (42 percent) and online purchases (41 percent), although that Sometimes it is not functional when unsafe methods are used to store them.

“Using a password management solution allows people to have strong passwords, without having to write them down in notebooks or remember complicated word strings,” said Andrei Mochola, director of Consumer Business at Kaspersky Lab.

These options allow users to keep several secure accounts without having to complicate the existence, as they should only remember a single password, which is kept secure.

In addition, with an administrator of this type, users can make use of a secure password generator service, which prevents hackers from accessing sensitive information, the security company said.

The common patterns
According to a recent report by Kromtech Security Research Center, passwords easily become “hackable” when they are easy to guess, as in the first half of 2017 alone more than 500 million email passwords were violated.

According to SplashData, the most used and easy to hack passwords were used again this year, in such a way that the most used passwords internationally were “123456”, “Password”, “12345678”, “qwerty”, “12345”, “123456789”, while in letters, the most used were: football, “iloveyou”, “login”, and even “starwars”.

Although it seems a joke, those were the most hacked passwords in 2017, and even the report refers that the last two years were devastating for data security, since companies such as Dropbox, SEC and Equifax have suffered attacks, rescues and attempts to Extortion, due to easy passwords.

For four consecutive years, “123456” is the most used password in the world, and that almost 10 percent of netizens have used at least one of the worst passwords mentioned above and almost 3 percent of the people in the world They have used that basic numbering from 1 to 6.
