Top 25 passwords of 2016. Are we really concerned about our privacy?

Recently, a fresh list of most common passwords was published by Keeper Security. And honestly, they are ridiculous.  We continue talking about identity thief on Internet, but we do not even bother protecting ourselves on the very first level.

Keeper has analysed 10 million passwords from data breaches in 2016. Below is the result of the most popular passwords of the web in 2016.

Isn’t it terrible? Even trying to be creative we are still so predictable (the example of “1q2w3e4r” and “1q2w3e4r5t” are the prove of it). Around 17% of the users still have the password “123456”. Privacy is not a joke, and we as users have to grow up, because those passwords could’ve been used in 2000, not in 2016.

If you find your password in this list – shame on you. If not – double check.

    I like your article. I never could have imagined that so many people could use the password “123456”. I do not understand why people pay so little importance to the choice of their password, especially for sites like facebook or the site of their bank … Fortunately mine is not in 🙂

    As Justine said, it’s crazy to see that lot of people still use passwords as “123456” or “qwerty” and I think it’s the same problem for those who use the same password for all their account. With all what happened people should pay more attention to protect themselves and their informations.

    17% is quite a lot, but a lot of people aren’t “IT educated” like most of the younger generation eg. parents, grandparents and they are just oblivious to the idea that someone somewhere might want to steal their data.
    More problematic is that some actual IT companies have login to their sites as admin and then “1234” as password. That is just asking for trouble if you ask me.
