In this threatening cyber age where all of your most intimate secrets and personal information are out in the open to preying hackers, it's important that internet users have a strong password to protect themselves. However, Jimmy Kimmel hilariously proved that not only do many people not have a strong enough password, they're willing to tell it to anyone on the street.

One woman who says her password is her dog's name (Jameson) and year of high school graduation (2009,) another man reveals his to be TelAviv468, and one person actually spells out his password for the crew, just in case they didn't catch it the first time. The video was made in reference to President Obama's State of the Union speech this coming Tuesday, where he's expected to comment on cyber security and many of the hacking stories that dominated 2014.

Take a look at the funny video above, and reevaluate if you need a stronger online password.
