List of 2018's dumbest passwords out, 'iloveyou' in top 10

List of 2018's dumbest passwords out, 'iloveyou' in top 10

The list only shows that consumers have not changed their behavior of using the most common passwords to protect their online behavior or activity.

SplashData examined more than 5 million passwords that had been leaked on the internet over the previous year and found that users are still using the same kind of predictable, easy-to-guess passwords that provide little to no security at all.

Bad passwords are short, easily guessed, often contain words or common abbreviations, and are used by many other people.

People are using the highest levels of government to come up with the world's lowest security passwords. Luckily there are lots of ways to have a secure password without having to have an elephant's memory. Competitors abound, including built-in support across Apple's and Google's hardware, software, and browsers-iOS, Safari, and iCloud for Apple and Android, Chrome, and other apps for Google-as well as 1Password, Dashlane, and LastPass.

The Kingdom Hearts III Limited Edition PS4 Pro Is Pretty Nice
The bundle also features a matching DualShock 4 controller and a copy of the Deluxe Edition version of Kingdom Hearts 3 . Kingdom Hearts 3 has often been regarded by industry enthusiasts as a game that may never see the light of day.


So, now tell me your password in the comments!

On top of the list is Kanye West, who was seen to use the code "000000" to unlock his phone during a meeting with President Trump on television. It found that more than 3% people have used the 123456 password, and at least 10% used one of the top 25.

It doesn't look like we're getting any smarter about our passwords. This means when you login in, you need your password as well as an additional authentication factor, like a six- or eight-digit passcode to log in. A hardware key is a physical item that is either inserted into your device or is read via Bluetooth to give your password another level of protection. Change your passwords and do it regularly!
