Every year there’s a list made of the worst possible passwords that have been used throughout the last twelve months. And this year those passwords are as bad as ever.
In data collected by SpashData, the most used password is the always-fun “123456” which is about as insecure as a password can get. But there are some worse, like “admin” which is presumably a default password for many things, too.
Amazingly the list of the top 25 worst passwords also includes “password1” and “qwerty” as if people seem to want to have their accounts and computers compromised.
Of course, it’s easy to see why these passwords are used. People either want a password they can remember or just want something they can enter without having to think. Both of those reasons are bad, though, and everyone really should be using a password manager to make their lives easier. Password managers will even take the hassle out of thinking of a secure password in the first place.
The full list reads:
In 2019 you might be forgiven for thinking people would know better, but apparently not. Oh, and while we’re talking about passwords, remember, don’t re-use the same passwords across multiple websites, devices, or services. It’s just not good password hygiene.
