Top 10 Most Commonly Used Passwords


In: Strategy Insights

PC Magazine’s May issue lists the top 10 most commonly used passwords online:

  1. password

  2. 123456

  3. qwerty

  4. abc123

  5. letmein

  6. monkey

  7. myspace1

  8. password1

  9. blink182

  10. (your first name)

Most sites now require both letters and numbers when creating a password, in an attempt to force users to select a secure password. This effectively prevents users from using the list's top 3 most commonly used passwords. I guess "password1" made the list by people who are dead set on using an unsecure password.
