Donald Trump, Paris Hilton and Mark Zuckerberg have something in common: poor passwords on their networks


Celebrities also have trouble creating passwords and this has led to Donald Trump, Paris Hilton and Mark Zuckerberg having their accounts hacked.

Celebrities are also people with their mistakes and successes. Despite the enormous myth that these personalities suffer, they are not exempt from having made some kind of mistake. In the case that we are going to treat the protagonists are the deficient passwords that Donald Trump, Paris Hilton and Mark Zuckerberg have used in their networks.

Yes, even the creator of Facebook can make a mistake when it comes to formulating a password to protect your social media profile. We know perfectly well the importance of having a secure password to prevent anyone from guessing it and gaining control of your personal account.

Taking into account the premise of poor passwords, we are going to see specifically what has happened to these three personalities and their different social networks. The first will be Donald Trump, who actually had such an absurdly easy password that a Dutch hacker easily gained access to the Twitter account in 2018.

What was Donald Trump’s password for Twitter? The answer is “yourefired”. Yes, the phrase that made him famous before becoming one of the presidents of the United States was his password for the social network owned by Elon Musk. But this is not all since in 2020 his password was “maga2020!” and, logically, it was also hacked.

Bad Passwords: A Story Told by Donald Trump, Paris Hilton, and Mark Zuckerberg

While it is true that Donald Trump had personal passwords, they were not strong passwords. Now it’s the turn of Paris Hilton whose password for her T-Mobile account was “tinkerbell” and which, unfortunately, was the name of her dog.. His mascot was famous so it was not difficult for the attackers to try the name and get their account.

The case of Mark Zuckerberg is somewhat more complex since the accounts that were compromised were: Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram. The OurMine hacker group managed to get hold of Mark Zucerberg’s password thanks to finding out that it was “dada”. Yes, his password consisted of a simple crutch used constantly in the United States.

It is clear that personal passwords do not work as strong passwords when it comes to phrases or names in the public domain even if they are of animals, people or objects that accompany you on a daily basis. There is something to be learned from this situation is the fact that it is necessary to create complicated passwords with different types of characters.
