Do these look familiar to you?
Believe it or not, this is what some people set as their internet passwords.
We all know how it goes. Most websites have made it into almost a game to set a simple password. You have to have to come up with a word. Then, they want you to add numbers to the word.
Oh yeah, and of course you have to have some sort of a “special character” to go along with it. But it can’t be just any special character. It can only be one of the first few on a keypad. And don’t make it too easy. Make sure the numbers aren’t in order. They are pickier than a fat person trying to place an order at a fast food restaurant.
Okay, maybe no quite that picky, but you get where I’m coming from.
With all of this extra security to make up your own stuff, you would think that it would be impossible to figure out what someone else’s password is… right?
Well, come to find out, it’s much easier than you think. No, you don’t have to be a hacker to try this, and no you don’t have to be a computer genius.
In fact, it’s so simple that even a kid could probably do it. This video shows you a neat little trick you can use if you’re trying to figure out what someone’s password could be.
After watching the video, I was kind of mad that I didn’t think to try this sooner. I’m not an undercover hacker or anything, but this is definitely a neat trick to keep in the back pocket.
So for all of those people out there who have been trying to get into their spouse or significant other’s accounts but just couldn’t figure out how to do it: this is for you.
