2013 List of Worst Passwords As Easy As 123456


Good news for those who use the word “password” as their password. It’s no longer the worst password. “Password” was dethroned last year. It’s number two, but still not the worst.

SplashData, which makes password management applications, is out with its 2013 list of the 25 worst passwords. It bases the list on files containing millions of stolen passwords posted online in the last year. Topping this year’s bonehead worst password list is “123456”. Not much better is it? 

Here’s the full list (see if yours is on it):

  1. 123456
  2. password
  3. 12345678
  4. qwerty
  5. abc123
  6. 123456789
  7. 111111
  8. 1234567
  9. iloveyou
  10. adobe123
  11. 123123
  12. admin
  13. 1234567890
  14. letmein
  15. photoshop
  16. 1234
  17. monkey
  18. shadow
  19. sunshine
  20. 12345
  21. password1
  22. princess
  23. azerty
  24. trustno1
  25. 000000

If any of them are yours, it might be a good idea to change them.  SplashData CEO Morgan Slain says, “As always, we hope that with more publicity about how risky it is to use weak passwords, more people will start taking simple steps to protect themselves by using stronger passwords and using different passwords for different websites.”

It’s as easy as 123456.
