And the Dumbest Passwords Are…

The word “password” probably shouldn’t be used as your password. That tops the list of the dumbest passwords in 2011! Hackers can guess that one.

What’s wrong with “qazwsx?” Seems tough enough. But look at the left side of your keyboard…those letters are all lined up in rows side-by-side, and it doesn’t take a genius hacker to try that one as he’s trying to wiggle his way into your email account.

The website Splashdata.com has just compiled what it says are the 25 worst, a.k.a. most popular, passwords of 2011. SplashData compiled the rankings by gathering data from the millions of stolen passwords posted online by hackers in 2011:

1. password
2. 123456
3.12345678
4. qwerty
5. abc123
6. monkey
7. 1234567
8. letmein
9. trustno1
10. dragon
11. baseball
12. 111111
13. iloveyou
14. master
15. sunshine
16. ashley
17. bailey
18. passw0rd
19. shadow
20. 123123
21. 654321
22. superman
23. qazwsx
24. michael
25. football

If ya have these, ya might try changin’ ‘em, especially with Black Friday shopping coming up online. Just sayin’!
