Do not forget!

However, if your passwords are the only ones that are listed above, change them quickly because you have been completely at risk of hacking. Meanwhile, try to use long passwords (at least 8 characters) and a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters. Also, do not use a single password for all your accounts, because in case of hacking one of the accounts, the possibility of hacking the rest is also very high.
