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.
