I like to keep things simple, but sometimes simple can be dangerous.
I recently read an article about the worst passwords of 2015. You’ll never guess the worst one: 123456. That, indeed, takes some creativity, as did these other examples in the top 20: 12345, 12345678 and 123456789. As a change of pace, there was also 111111.
The #2 most dangerous password? Password. Yes, the word password. So if you’ve been using that one, feel free to add this line to your Facebook page: “Please, hacker, come steal my stuff, because I have no imagination whatsoever.”
Among the rest of the top 20 worst passwords were: baseball, football, monkey, dragon and mustang. However, I was particularly unhappy with the 20th worst password on the list: Michael. Yes, somehow my name ended up being used and abused as a password. So I guess now I need to change all my passwords.
I’m glad there is one thing that is both simple and true: God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him would not perish but have eternal life—and the only password required by the gospel is faith.
