Computers and digital devices have become an unavoidable part of our life. We use passwords for every other thing that we do, for our emails, Internet Banking, ATM cards, Phones and the list can go on and on… How many times we reuse the same passwords for all of the various accounts we have? Most of us forget the danger of having silly passwords, like our nick name, names of the places we visit or was born, friends, flowers, dogs, etc. I remember my Hotmail account being ‘hacked’ by one of my friends a decade back. All he did was to guess my password! The following article explains some of the worst passwords that most of us (not me :p) use. You may see one of your passwords in this list, if you do so, Please CHANGE IT IMMEDIATELY! Research has shown that the following passwords have been used by thousands of people around the world.

There are some interesting passwords on this list that show how people try to be clever. For example, look at these passwords that I found interesting:


ncc1701: The ship number for the Star ship Enterprise

thx1138: The name of George Lucas’s first movie

qazwsx: Follows a simple pattern when typed on a typical keyboard

666666: Six sixes

7777777: Seven sevens

Booboo: My girlfriend boo boo me all the time ;)

Monkey:  I knew someone who had this password ;)

There are some, well many actually, offensive words in the list, please don’t blame me, some people out there chose that! ;)

Statistics shows that “…approximately one out of every nine people uses at least one password on the list shown in Table 9.1! And one out of every 50 people uses one of the top 20 worst passwords…”

Change Your Password Immediately if You Find It in The Following Table
