How do you choose your computer password?

Do you use your name backwards? Maybe your birth date? Your partner’s name or birth date? Maybe you use numbers that are easy to remember …

The thing is, if you choose numbers that are easy to remember, the fact is that hackers may figure out what your computer password is in no time. They just love easy passwords, like names of computer programs, easy number sequences and even words like password and admin. Jeez!

The computer passwords listed below are rated as the most common  and worst passwords used by computer users during 2013.

SplashData compiled a list of stolen passwords that was made public during 2013 and the Top 20 Worst Computer Passwords are listed below:

1. 123456

2. password

3. 12345678

4. qwerty

5. abc123

6. 123456789

7. 111111

8. 1234567

16. 1234

17. monkey

18. shadow

19. sunshine

20. 12345

With 12345 at number 20, we can only wonder about such an intelligent choice! Number 17 wins the prize for a perfect description of intellect in choosing a password. What about number 15? Letmein. Yes, sure – come on in and hack away all you want!

Number 13 was really original! Can he really remember all those digits in the correct order?

WordPress Has actually requested their users not to use Admin as username or password and apparently number 11  got stuck at 3, so he started all over again.

Number 7 – oh, really! A list of six 1’s? Maybe he has a fixation on ONE. One and only, number ONE. Maybe he thinks it looks like a bar code and is therefore an excellent password …

Let’s just skip to number 2: password. No comment

And the winner, number 1: 123456. Aren’t you left speechless?
