The 25 Worst Passwords of 2015 [List]

SplashData has announced the 2015 edition of its ‘Worst Passwords List’ highlighting the most insecure passwords of the year.’123456′ and ‘password’ are still the most commonly used passwords. They have been since the list first debuted in 2011. SplashData compiled its list from more than two million leaked passwords during the year. Some new longer passwords made their debut this year but they are so simple that their extra length is virtually worthless as a security measure. For example, “1234567890”, “1qaz2wsx” (first two columns of main keys on a standard keyboard), and “qwertyuiop” (top row of keys on a standard keyboard) all appear in the top 25 list for the first time, but they are each based on simple patterns that would be easily guessable by hackers.Share Article:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Email,   Reddit,   Digg,   Delicious,   StumbleUponFollow iClarified:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Newsletter,   App Store,   YouTubeAdvertise Here
