2012 Worst Passwords

A few years ago, I wrote two posts on secure passwords (see links at the end of this post).  Thursday, October 25, 2012 CNN's Olivia B. Waxman published an article on the worst passwords, "The 25 Worst Passwords of 2012" to be exact. I know Web Bytes readers are extremely tech savvy and won't fall into this pattern, so here is the list for you to share with friends and family:

1. password
2, 123456
3. 12345678
4. abc123
5. qwerty
6. monkey
7. letmein
8. dragon
9. 111111
10. baseball
11. iloveyou
12. trustno1
13. 1234567
14. sunshine
15. master
16. 123123
17. welcome
18. shadow
19. ashley
20. football
21. jesus
22. michael
23. ninja
24. mustang
25. password1

You can read Olivia's article in its entirety on the CNN website at the link above. I Hope this post in conjunction with my previous posts on passwords will help you to create passwords that are easy for you to remember, but difficult for others to guess. As mentioned above, the following links are from Web Bytes published in 2009.

As always, please email me with topics you are interested in knowing more about and let’s have a good time learning together!

In His service,
