Passwords & the Bible

According to InTechnology, the ten most common passwords in use right now are:

  1. password{mosimage}
  2. 123456
  3. qwerty
  4. abc123
  5. letmein
  6. monkey
  7. myspace1
  8. password1
  9. link182
  10. (your first name)

I hope that you don’t use any of these because it won’t be long till someone uses it in a malicious fashion.

Instead, let me suggest an alternative password schema.  A secure password is at least 6-8 characters in length and a combination of letters & numbers.

Why not use your favorite bible references as passwords?

John 3:16 could be ‘jn316’ as your password, or ‘john316’ — but it’d be even better if you went with something like 1 Thessalonians 5:22, which could become ‘1thess522’ — a quite secure password.

And you can even pick out different ones for different categories.  Your finance password becomes a passage that deals with money.  Your shopping password becomes one that deals with possessions.  Your email password is a passage that focuses on the tongue.  Well, you get the idea.  Don’t overdo it.
