Worst Password list revealed

SplashData have published their yearly list of the worst passwords still in use by people. While we all know that god, sex, love and secret make for awful passwords, apparently the list of commonly used bad ones is a little bit longer.

Coming in the top spot is still “password”, even at the end of 2011 people are still using this it seems. Some of the number related ones are a joke too. “123456”, really?

Fox News comments that while the name passwords like “Michael” make sense, it’s strange to see things like “shadow” and “sunshine” make an appearance.

Anyhow, here’s the full list:

  • 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
