Are You Too Confident With Online Security?

According to Mashable, a new Harris Poll revealed that 78% of Gen-Zers use the same password across multiple online platforms. When you take into account that 40 million Americans lose online information from business hacking annually (Drop Big Inc), the idea of using the same password for multiple accounts becomes even scarier.

Drop Big Inc also reports that it only takes a staggering 10 minutes to hack a 6 character, lowercase password. If you're repeating this same password, you're only making it easier for hackers to access all of your accounts and personal information.

Are you careful with your online safety? Keep your passwords individual, and change them often to protect yourself from cyber attacks.
