Up to 7.9 million in UK use pet’s name as password


Around 15% of all UK adults use their pet’s name in their password, a survey from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has revealed. The report has come at a time when remote working has become commonplace, putting extra importance on password security. The results of the survey showed that pets’ names were the most common form of password at 15%, followed by family members’ names (14%), important dates (13%), and favourite sports teams (6%). Along with these results, the report included examples of the most commonly used, and most predictable, passwords.
