Annual list of worst passwords published

Written by Nedim Hadzic

‘Password’ still reigns.

 There’s no other way to put it – people hate having to remember anything, let alone passwords. Unfortunately, seeking for convenient methods to address this problem often results in heeding Captain Obvious’ suggestions.

SplashData published its annual list of worst passwords, including the inventive ‘123456’ and the entirely different ‘12345678’. See what they did there? Of course you do.

As you can see, ‘password’ still tops the list and we’re wondering whether there will be an end to this human ingenuity. The full list is as follows:

1. password
2. 123456
3.12345678
4. qwerty
5. abc123
6. monkey
7. 1234567
8. letmein
9. trustno1
10. dragon
11. baseball
12. 111111
13. iloveyou
14. master
15. sunshine
16. ashley
17. bailey
18. passw0rd
19. shadow
20. 123123
21. 654321
22. superman
23. qazwsx
24. michael
25. football
