The Most Popular Passwords of 2015 Are Terrifying

null

Every year, SplashData makes a list of the most popular passwords, and every year, the results are abysmal. They are, quite honestly, tragic beyond comprehension, mostly for two reasons: 

  • People didn't even use a real word, instead opting to hit the keyboard in a line-like, mindless fashion
  • They used the name of a sport. Sportzing.

We Are the Worst

You think I'm kidding, but I'm not. The list, which takes 2 million leaked passwords and sorts them by popularity, is 25 lines of complete blasphemy. I know it's impossible to craft a completely unique and creative password for every single site you use and then remember all of them (believe me, I've changed my Jimmy John's password at least seven times), but this is basically asking for people to steal your identity, run away with your tax refund, and pose as you on a strange, niche dating app.  

As presented by SplashData, these are the most disappointing of 2015's most common passwords:

(I can't even believe I'm typing these.) 

12345

Yes, really. 

123456

Because some passwords have to be six characters. 

1234567

Do you know how many people have to really use this password for it to make the list? Like have to really, truly choose this?

12345678

Alright.

123456789

I can't. 

1234567890

lskfjlsjhfalsjhglasikjdhlkjdf@! (Which would, coincidentally, make a better password.)

111111

For people who think moving their index fingers one inch to the right is too strenuous. 

abc123

I'll allow this, because associating a jingle with your password might be kind of fun. 

baseball

Sportz.

football

Sportzzzzzzz.

password

No.

qwerty

Ah, so we've graduated to the line below 123456. 

qwertyuiop

......

dragon

Let's just hope this is Game of Thrones related. 

monkey

I mean. Monkeys are dope, I guess. 

princess 

null

letmein

Actually, this should be my Jimmy John's password, as it's the only thing I'm ever going to be able to remember past midnight. 

starwars

Alternative Star Wars passwords you could use: 

  • MarryMeOscarIsaac
  • KyloRenWHY
  • LogInOrDontLogInThereIsNoTry

Notable things missing from last year's list include trustno1, michael, and 696969. Which is kind of disappointing, if I'm being totally honest. Those were at least marginally entertaining.
