A new study from password management firm SplashData has found the word Mustang is the 16th most common password used on the internet, ahead of Batman and Superman.
SplashData says Mustang was the only car in the top 25 most common passwords used on the internet in 2014. Ford is proud of this feat, however they suggest finding a stronger password to lock away your personal accounts, ones with lower and uppercase charachters, and maybe even Mustang-related acornyms such as B302 (Boss 302), for example.
“We’re flattered people want to use ‘mustang’ as their password, but alone, it just isn’t strong enough to be secure,” said Keith Moss, Ford Director of Cyber Security. “We encourage people to use ‘mustang,’ but we recommend they strengthen their password by mixing upper and lower case letters, numbers, acronyms and symbols to make it unique.”
