Lifehacker might convince you to finally change those passwords

Now, you've heard before that you should make your password unique and difficult, especially if you are going to re-use it (as almost everyone does). But have any of those warnings really led you to change your passwords?

Well a post by Lifehacker might.

The byline states: "Internet standards expert, CEO of web company iFusion Labs, and blogger John Pozadzides knows a thing or two about password security—and he knows exactly how he'd hack the weak passwords you use all over the internet."

He's got a list of the most popular 10 items people use when they create passwords. Ok, so maybe you're smarter than that.

But then he's got a list of tricks to find your password so he doesn't actually have to guess what it is. And you know what? THAT might actually get you to change your password.

Do yourself a favour and check out the article: How I’d Hack Your Weak Passwords. It's worth the 5 minutes.
