Hamburg (dpo) - Hacked accounts, security gaps, email data theft: more and more people are justifiably concerned about their password security. However, this could soon come to an end. Today, Europe’s largest association of hackers, the Chaos Computer Club, officially selected Mb2.r5oHf-0t as the world’s safest password. This follows tests in which all common passphrase finder programmes failed to identify this password due to its sophisticated character string.



Concerned Internet users are advised to change all account passwords to Mb2.r5oHf-0t as soon as possible.


When are you going to switch to the safe password?

Heck, I read the password three times and still can't remember it. Sure it is a safe password, you can't start an account if you can't remember the password.

The key to a good password is reversing your favorite actors surname, multiplying two random numbers and adding your worst fear and spending six weeks trying to remember it.

How hard is it to remember onicaP1362heights? On second thoughts id rather stick with 'password', but if i feel adventurous i might change them to 'password1234'.

The number one mistake I think people make is making their passwords harder than they need.

The number one thing to remember is actually remember it.

Cater your password to your memory.

Too hard ?

Your gonna be resetting passwords way too often.

I thought it was "********"?

Everyone is using "*" when I watch their screen as they type their passwords.
