Annual 25 Worst Passwords List

Splashdata, a company that provides the SplashID Safe line of password management applications, has provided its annual list of the 25 worst passwords.  For the first time since Splashdata started compiling its worst passwords list, the infamous “password” has dropped to #2 on the list.  It was unseated by “123456.”

SplashData’s list was compiled “from files containing millions of stolen passwords posted online during the previous year.”

Here are SplashData’s “Worst Passwords of 2013”:

    Hey, #24 was Fox Mulder’s password on X-Files! (Actually, he spelled out “one”) And he was an FBI agent! How can that be bad. 🙂
