You Won’t Believe The “Complicated” Password Zuckerberg Used For Social Media Accounts


Over the weekend, hackers took a “swing” at the dad of Social Media, Mark Zuckerberg. Surprisingly (but not, really), his Twitter and Pinterest accounts were broken into after his login details were exposed during the recent LinkedIn password dump.

That means Zuck made a mistake only us “mortals” should be allowed to: use the same password on various sites/platforms. Not only that, but the password used was so… simple, it blew our minds away. Just dadada.  No numbers, no special characters, nothing lengthy or cryptic.

Of course, his team quickly re-secured the accounts, probably learned their lesson and changed it with something more complicated, stating that at least his Facebook account hadn’t been hacked: “No Facebook systems or accounts were accessed. The affected accounts have been re-secured.”

All in all, one thing is undeniably true: the username-password combo has stopped being a trusted security measure long ago, so don’t expect to keep your accounts private forever if you rely just on it. Secondly, the two-step verification isn’t that impenetrable as some of us might have thought, hence the LinkedIn disaster.
