Are You Guilty Of Using Any Of These Passwords?

With all that Heartbleed Bug news, suddenly we’ve got thinking about the passwords we use. We’ve even had to go through the headache of thinking up new ones all over again (and if you haven’t, you definitely should – check here for which sites you should change now!).

It’s definitely interesting to see some of the ‘creative’ passwords users think of. Some are extraordinarily funny; some are just alright, while some are straight up common and could be guessed within a few seconds.

Some people use the events of their lives as their passwords (we’re serious!). For instance, we have a friend that uses the name of their ex followed by a horrid word to describe their nasty breakup. Perhaps it’s a way for these poor souls to vent their anger… somehow? We think it would only make us more frustrated, tapping out their name every day.

Then there’s always that fail safe… using the word “password” as their password. Believe it or not, this is actually one of the most common passwords used around the world. They actually believe that no would ever guess it, as it’s too obvious. It’s simply amazing how these people’s minds work, isn’t it?

There are the ones who are convinced that their relationship is going to last forever – hence the “letsbetogetherforeverlikeshrekandfiona” password. We’ve got to give them the thumbs up for their bravery in proclaiming their love as their password. Not!

Moving on, we have people with the brains of Albert Einstein, and boy, are they determined to make their passwords as complicated as possible! We’ve found one password, Isha!!u53$4rong-p@5sw0rdz! Now that’s impressive.

Another crazy password that we’ve come across recently is ASSword. Apparently, this evolved from “password”. No need to explain how they got to that one! Well, at least it’s funny and easy to remember.

Anyway, here’s our list of the strangest passwords we have ever heard of – make sure you avoid these ones at all cost! They are absolutely legendary!

The 20 worst passwords you can use:
  1. 123456
  2. password
  3. qwerty
  4. 12345678
  5. abc123
  6. monkey
  7. sunshine
  8. iloveyou
  9. letmein
  10. trustno1
  11. iwoulddieforyou
  12. superman
  13. S3CURITY@Risk
  14. ASSword
  15. Ineedajob
  16. Greatpassword
  17. ilovemycat
  18. IncorrectPassword
  19. Smurf69
  20. shadow

Did you have fun reading those crazy yet predictable passwords? We definitely did!

Our favourite ‘worst password’ has got to be “Ineedajob” – although if that’s the most imaginative password you can come up with, you probably don’t deserve one!

What’s your favourite?
