If Your Password Is On This List, You Should Change It Immediately

A few months ago, a password-management company called SplashData released its annual list of most popular passwords hackers have found and used to hack into accounts.

SplashData took a look at more then 2 million passwords that had leaked last year and create a Top 25 list of most popular passwords. They advice that anyone who has any account with any of these passwords needed to login, to change it into something much more difficult immediately.

By now, you would think that people wouldn’t choose very easy passwords anymore, but surprisingly “123456” and “password” were still the most popular and used passwords according to their research.

With that being said, let’s have a look at the actual list!
