Argh, my password!

Wasn´t it the one from Spaceballs?

Wait that is my bank account … whom stole it…

So I’m perfectly safe with my “1234567”. :wink:

I use a much more difficult password.
“654321” that fools all hackers.

Has to be longer 12345678910 the more the better :slight_smile:

I especially loathe the #5 worst password: “12345”. That’s the kind of combination an idiot would have on his luggage. We need to be smarter than that, and use passwords that actually work. Also, could someone change the combination on my luggage?
