7. letmein

21. jesus

23. ninja
24. mustang
25. password1


Splashdata, a company that manages passwords, made of list of the top 25 worst passwords of this year. Some like “password,” “123456,” and “1234578” are nothing new, but words like “Jesus,” “ninja,” and “welcome,” are some new additions to the list. The company said that welcome was the most surprising because it shows that people are not even changing the default passwords! It’s true that people are becoming more lazy, but that’s taking it to another level. The company also suggests that people come up with passwords are phrases to help remember them. 

The most surprising password from the list was number 19, ashley. WHY? Is it because there are a lot of lazy Ashley’s out there who just use their first name as every single password..???? 

I have no idea, but I would just like to say that none of my passwords are just ashley.
