Remembering passwords is really difficult, but we should still probably avoid using the easy ones.

One of my biggest at-work pet peeves is when a password is about to expire. I know that I will wait too long to change it and then inevitably be locked out of my account. I know, I know, I should change it when I get the first reminder... but then that requires coming up with a new password, and then having to remember it.

You know this is a real struggle.

We should all agree to keep a little journal or a note in our phone with the passwords.

But, you must pick a password first, and according to this article from Mental Floss, there are 25 passwords we should all NEVER use.

While some of these seem pretty obvious... like "password," some are kind of silly, like "michael." That many people would guess your password is michael? Noted.
