The most common site to be broken into is LinkedIn with 6.5 million breaches recorded. In those breaches, the most common passwords were link, 1234, work and job. Surprisingly 40 percent of passwords only use lowercase letters and 30 percent use under six characters. If this were the case for you, it would take your computer ten minutes to crack the password.
