As we edge nearer to the end of 2018, you would probably be safe to expect that people using the Internet are well aware of what should or should not constitute a good password.
Surely, with 2019 upon us, nobody is using the word “password” as their password. Unfortunately, they are. A lot of people are.
The folks at SplashData have started to make a tradition out of sharing the worst passwords used by people who should probably know better, and the 2018 lineup is depressingly similar to results of years passed.
Well-known bad passwords, such as “123456” and “password” are still very much in use, and we’re not really sure what to say about that. We’re too busy shaking our heads in disbelief. Let’s take a look at the top ten passwords, shall we?
The full list has another ninety for you to peruse, but be warned, it doesn’t get much better. Passwords like “donald” and even “soccer” are well placed on that list, and it’s clear that good password hygiene is still something far too many people are not familiar with.
We’re sure everyone reading this knows better than to use such passwords, and you’re all using strong and unique passwords for all of your accounts. Those passwords are never easy to remember, but there are plenty of free or inexpensive password managers out there – pick one, use it, and stay safe. It’s really not rocket science, folks.
You’ll thank us the next time there’s a data breach and you don’t have to reset all of your passwords.
