Please DON'T Use These Passwords

Passwords are a necessary evil until we come up with something better. It's a bit discouraging when we see these lists of the "most popular" passwords (read: "the passwords the bad guys will try first"). If you do find your current/favorite password in this list, it's time to wake up and smell the coffee. So here we go with the 2013 list, courtesy of SplashData:

    2. password (Down 1)
    3. 12345678 (Unchanged)
