I'm legitimately shocked "password" didn't make the list.

My passwords are probably just as lame as some of these. I don't really have much that I care if it gets hacked, though. You want into my Facebook, my email? Fine, whatever.

    I hate websites that restrict your passwords. If I want to have a stupid password, then let my account get screwed over. Sometimes they force you to have a number, sometimes they force you to have a certain amount of characters, sometimes they force you to have a capital letter or worst off they force you to have a password you didn't have before.

    I freaking hate you Apple.

    Capitalize the first letter or add a punctuation mark. Done.

    I have a few of those types of passwords, but the problem is I forget which websites I have what variation of what passwords for. I've burned through 8 Apple account passwords, because they keep ****ING FORCING ME TO KEEP CHANGING THEM JUST BECAUSE I USED THEM BEFORE! And ON TOP OF THAT, if you guess 3 times wrong, they lock your account and force you to change your password.

    ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    I tend to agree with Cipher.

    If someone really wants into your account, and they know what they're doing, you don't have much chance to stop them anyway. So why not just make a password you know you can remember?

    I suggest last pass. Its great program for generating passwords and saving them. And for a dollar a month you get access to mobile apps.

    My passwords are absolutely unhackable. Which is why I get annoyed when sites force you to change your password every so often. That and please, people who fall for phishing scams today won't be protected because they changed their passwords a week ago or even yesterday.

    Once I hacked my friends mail and subsequently his Facebook cause his secret question was "Mother's birthplace" and the answer was the actual answer.

    I give correct answers, but I give impossibly specific ones. Like, for "Who was your childhood best friend?" I gave her full name, first, middle, and last.

    But lying is a good strategy, too.

    "What's your father's middle name?" Pogostick.

    "What was your first pet's name?" Refrigerator.

    "What was your first job?" Robot ninja.

    "Where were you born?" Krypton.

    "What was your high school's nickname?" The fighting Kilimanjaros.

    And so on...

    Not many people know about my childhood; my high school years yeah, but that's the bulk of people know of locally or online.

    Every password is hackable, it just depends on the determination and the free time that the hacker has to do it.

    I answer those like it's a real person asking:

    Who is your best friend: You know there's been no one better than you baby, now come give me the romance.

    I always get "Wha'ts your Dogs name"

    And her name is "PJ"

    And it always tells me that it is too short of a response.

    Other really commonly used passwords include 1qaz2wsx, 1q2w3e4r, and the like. Try to stay away form those.

    I remember an old security joke that went something like, "Dammit, I named my password after my dog, and now I have to change it? I'm sorry, #s9s1faj!_291ba old boy, I wanted to dedicate something to you..."

    OMG, how did my passwords end up on this site?!?!?!

    The sites that annoy me are the ones that force you into a password that's only 6-8 characters long. That can be brute forced within a matter of days.

    Let me have my 20+ character password plzkthx.

    Also annoying from an interface design is when a site only allows, say, 15 characters maximum for a password, but doesn't limit the password field to 15 characters.

    6-8 character passwords are okay so long as there's a login limit and block.

    what I hate are sites that require passwords without any same characters, requires a capital letter, special character AND a number.
