Password mistakes hackers hope you make

Don't make life easier for hackers by using passwords that are easy to crack.

If your password is you name, favourite football team, a number such as 123456, or the word "password', you give cyber crooks a huge advantage.

Change your password every three months - and never use the same one for multiple websites.
