25 Worst Passwords of 2013


If you have a sneaking suspicion that your passwords are bad, we have some upsetting news: They probably are.

Luckily, SplashData is here to help you change your lazy ways with its annual list of the worst online passwords.

I mean, we wear computers on our faces now. Using “password” as your password just seems out of place in a world where you can wear computers on your face, doesn’t it? We should know better by now. Looking at SplashData’s findings, it’s pretty incredible to learn that many of us don’t.

The big news with this year’s list is that “123456″ has dethroned the perennial champion, “password.” We’re not sure whether that’s a good sign or a bad sign, but we’re leaning toward the latter. In fact, many of the list’s newcomers are simply longer chronological strings of numbers. It would seem that when your “123456″ password gets hacked, the popular solution is to add a “7.”

Below, we’ve listed the 25 worst passwords online. If yours is included, seriously think about making a change.
