If your password lacks creativity, it’s time you get a new one.

New research shows there are many common passwords out there that can put your information at risk.

The top three most hacked passwords are “password,” “1-2-3-4-5-6,” and “1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8.”

There were some odd passwords that made the list, like “monkey,” “baseball,” and “welcome.”

To keep your password safe, create passwords of eight or more mixed characters.

Also, avoid using the same password for multiple websites.

There is also an app you can download to help organize passwords.
