The Most Popular Passwords of 2019

twit.su

Passwords are important. But this message still fails to reach millions of people who pick “12345” as their password, NordPass reports.

ndependent researchers, who requested to stay anonymous, compiled and shared with us a list of 200 most popular passwords that were leaked in data breaches just this year. The database is quite impressive — 500 million passwords in total. And if you think that’s a lot of leaked passwords, we have some bad news for you — it’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The most popular passwords contain all the obvious and easy to guess number combinations (12345,111111,123321), popular female names (Nicole, Jessica, Hannah), and just strings of letters forming a horizontal or vertical line on a QWERTY keyboard (asdfghjkl, qazwsx, 1qaz2wsx, etc.). Surprisingly, the most obvious one — “password” — remains very popular; 830,846 people still use it.
