'Password' is not the most common password anymore

  • Those who use '123456' as their passwords may need to make the change since it's been named the worst password of last year. 

    "iloveyou," "abc123" also made it to the list of the least secure passwords, along with common words such as "shadow." This information came into light due to the big Abobe breach that ended up revealing millions of passwords. 

    "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," the chief exec of Splashdata said. Splashdata advises users to include random words and spaces or underscores in order to make their passwords more secure.
