According to internet security firm, SplashData, it's downright scary what some people use as their passwords. And, the firm has come out with its annual list of the 25 most used. Some are a hacker's dream come true. For example, topping the list, again, is "password." That, of course, is followed by the somewhat predictable "123456", and "12345678."
SplashData releases the list each year in an effort to convince internet users to better secure their online information.
"We're hoping 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", says Morgan Slain, SplashData CEO.
Below is the entire list of this year's worst passwords.
