The number of hacked social media accounts is growing every year. It is not the increase in the number of hackers that is to blame, but the informational illiteracy of people. It is because of the users' lack of basic security skills that account passwords are so often stolen. In our country, Odnoklassniki and VKontakte are considered the most popular social networks. As a rule, young people use social networks from Pavel Durov, and the older generation prefers to register with Odnoklassniki to find friends, acquaintances and communicate with them.
For users "over 50", the Internet is a curiosity, and therefore they often use dates of birth, names of children or the standard set of "qwerty", "12345", "password" as a password, unaware that in this way, they only make life easier for scammers and hackers. If you use a simple password, then you have a high chance of losing your account. We recommend that you change your password to a more complex one. How to change the password in Odnoklassniki, and what should it be?
It won't take even a couple of minutes to change the password for your Odnoklassniki account. But before you start changing the pass, you should understand that the password must be long and complex. If you find it difficult to remember your password, write it down on a piece of paper and place it next to your computer. In any case, hackers won't come to your house for a pass. It is very difficult, sometimes even impossible, to crack a password consisting of letters and numbers, as well as additional characters via the Internet. For example, the pass "12345" is cracked in 10 seconds, since it is on the top lines in a special brute force database. A password like "1q2w3e4r5t" is also easy to crack, as it is a standard pass for many users. The lHJy style pass is considered the ideal password.
It is enough to go to the settings page and click the "Login" link. In the window that opens, you will need to enter a new username and password for your account and click the "Save" button.
