A report from NordPass found that the average Internet user has around 100 passwords registered online.

If you are currently using one of these common passwords it’s recommended to change them immediately!

Last year we reported on a story where a group was selling thousands of streaming service passwords that were obtained through computer hacking techniques.

Website Operator Charged with Stealing Passwords

When changing passwords, it’s recommended to use combinations longer than the minimum number of characters, use uncommon characters, don’t reuse the same password on multiple accounts, and use a password manager.

  1. Troy, i have not used one of these pws, i do have quite a few i use most of the time, but i change often. I have followed you for a long time and have become pretty good with the stick. I have many of my relatives and friends that ask for my help. And when asked why i seem to know so much, i, of course tell then “Thank Troy of Troypoint” I don’t know if i can ask you something here, but i am going to ask. I love Syncler and the packages, but would be able to tell me which packages work best with Bouncy. I have gone through them and cannot seem to find one that will give me more then 3 or 4 sources. Since you are my mentor, can you help me with this? PLease keep up the excellent job you do to keep us all up to date with the firestick and so many other things. I really enjoy and trust your knowledge about everything.
    Thank You Very Much

  2. One that seems to be missing is also one that is far more common than it should be – drowssap. I have come across a fair number of people who use it and think it’s ‘secure’ simply because it is spelt backwards

  3. Wow unbelievable , my eves is open and aware after strong cup of reality ! I bet the developers of email was totally clueless to what it is today. Now i Understand the depth of this password thing and why we have to treat “any password to anything” like Fort Knox strengthening our first line of defence ! –as usual another informative, awsome vid. THANKS

  4. Thanks for all of your help via Troy point emails.. I did cut the cord several yrs ago and saved thousands of dollars. Please keep doing what your doing I am NOT a social media person. I only get my intell from these emails..
    Thanks again..

  5. Troy I want to let you know that you have been a blessing by assisting in providing information and guidance to people on using the net to gain access to information. I took your advise and change my vpn To Ipvanish and have been much more satisfied. I am a 26 year AF veteran that is 91 years old. Keep up the good work

  6. Some employers that require changing passwords do not allow sequences like ABC or 123 in the password. They also do not allow reusing any part of prior passwords for 90 days. This may help in setting up your own passwords.
