The Top 10 Worst Passwords – Is Yours Among Them?

Okay, I admit that one of my previous passwords is on this list. I have long ago changed that password to something a bit more challenging; yet, this list demonstrates how easy it is to become complacent over creating a secure link to our personal information.

This list comes from Splashdata. You can check out the complete list at http://bit.ly/uAf2B2  If your password is one of those listed below, you might think about changing it.

1.   password

2.   123456

3.   12345678

4.   qwerty

5.   abc123

6.   monkey

7.    1234567

8.   letmein

9.    trustno1

    • You are the smart one, Diane. When my web mistress set up my website, she used one of this for the initial log in. I admit that I foolishly did not change it for several months. Of course, that was some three years prior.
