Do you think all your passwords are strong enough to guess? Well, many internet users may think that their passwords are unique and strong but there are minds on the same wavelength.

According to SplashData, the passwords evaluated for the 2014 list were mostly held by users in North America and Western Europe. In 2014, millions of passwords from Russian accounts were also leaked, but these passwords were not included in the analysis.

Morgan Slain, CEO of SplashData β€œAny password using numbers alone should be avoided, especially sequences. As more websites require stronger passwords or combinations of letters and numbers, longer keyboard patterns are becoming common passwords, and they are still not secure.”

Looks like “123456” holds no.1 position for the second year. Hope your password is not listed below,

  1. Lol few users still don’t understand the seriousness of having a secure password. Either they go with numbers or most familiar names πŸ˜€
