The Worst Passwords of 2015

SplashData has announced the 2015 edition of its annual “Worst Passwords List”, which highlights the insecure password habits of Internet users. As you can imagine, passwords such as “123456” and “password” still top the list as the most frequently used passwords. However, the list shows a level of being affected by trends in popular culture, as new entries included items such as “starwars” and “solo”. The use of bad passwords places the end user at risk for hacking and identity theft, as such recognizable passwords makes it easier for criminals, hackers, and the like to guess them.
