Don’t get caught using these passwords

Each year, SplashData releases the Worst Passwords of the year. In 2012, there sure were some bad passwords, with “password” topping the list. Obviously you don’t want to use “password” as your password! But it looks like the 2013 year proved to be no different.

And the passwords were just as bad, with “password” getting trumped by “123456”. I don’t know which is worse? Either way, the top ten worst passwords of 2013 are below. Please don’t use them, think of something stronger. Typically an eight-to-ten character alphanumeric word, with at least one uppercase or lowercase letter.
