The 25 Worst Passwords to Use


Choosing passwords can be a pain in the butt. Especially when the password requirement has so many restrictions. Splashdata, an Internet security software company, published a list of the 25 worst passwords in 2015- and you should seriously avoid them.

By now you should know how important it is to have a strong password for all of your online accounts. Weak passwords make it easier for hackers to hack your accounts and get your information. That’s no fun right? Splashdata took some time to compile date from over 2 million passwords that were hacked and posted online. They then put together a list of the 25 worst passwords to use.

Here are the 25 passwords that you shouldn’t use:

  1. 123456
  2. password
  3. 12345678
  4. qwerty
  5. 12345
  6. 123456789
  7. football
  8. 1234
  9. 1234567
