Many people have the practice of using the same passwords across multiple accounts. It is easier to remember, but if there is a security vulnerability on one account, everything could be compromised.

Don't use personal information or your pet’s information because it may help hackers to try and exploit more. In my case, I increased the password strength, I used different types of characters, symbols, and numbers. Now I’m safe.
