It's important to note that even though these are the top 20, there are thousands of others that are as easy to crack. We highly recommend sticking to at least 10 characters, and include combinations of numbers, letters and even symbols. Some good passwords include:

  1. ThisIsMyPassWord123..!!!
  2. thisisalreadyhardertoguessBUTNOWITSHARDER
  3. easyHARDERH4RD3ST...!!!

These three might be extreme examples, but it should be fairly easy to apply these concepts and generate an easy to remember password.
