The 25 Worst Passwords of the Year and How to Create Better Passwords

The CNN Tech blog recently published a list of the worst passwords of 2012. The top of the list includes all of the things that you might expect like "abc123," "password," and "qwerty." Hopefully, you and your students are not using any of the passwords on the list.

But if you or one of your students are using weak password, try one of these three free tools to create a strong password. If you prefer to create your own password rather than rely on a random password generator, watch the video below for suggestions on forming strong passwords.

Create a Strong and Simple Password

I recently came across a simple, but effective password creation tool. Password Bird was featured on iLearn Technology last week. Password Bird is a simple website that asks you three questions then generates a password for you based on your responses. Every password it generated for me included numbers and letters. If you don't like the password it generates for you, simply click the link for a new password.

Applications for Education
Password Bird is a great tool to have students try when they can't think of their own computer passwords. This is a particularly handy tool when students have to create passwords that include numbers.
