What is Shoulder Surfing and Guessing ?


At our site, there are many topics which are discussed commonly here like phishing,keylogging,cookie stealing,JavaScript etc. but today I am going to discuss 2 other methods which are also responsible for hacking and cracking of passwords. One is Shoulder surfing and other is Guessing mainly.

1. Shoulder Surfing

When you type your password make sure that there is no one behind you attempting to peak and seeing what you are typing. If there is, turn around and warn him/her to not to do it again or wait until he goes from that particular place. Also, make sure you don’t keep any sticky notes laying around that have your password or password hints on them.


2. Guessing

To prevent this attack from happening, never use a password like your birth date, your mobile number, your mother’s maiden name, your pets name, your spouse’s name, or anything that someone may be able to guess easily. Also note- Never use passwords with orderwise digits, for ex – 12345678 etc..
