Jimmy Kimmel Got A Bunch Of People To Give Him Their Passwords On National Television

On his late night television show, Jimmy Kimmel reminded us once again that using “Password123” as a password for secure sites is never a good idea.

“It’s my dog’s name and then the year I graduated from high school,” one woman said.

“And what’s its name?”

“Jamison,” she says proudly.

Then the interviewer asks where the woman went to high school, and what year she graduated. The woman spills the beans.
