The 10 Most Popular Passwords Were The Ones System Administrators Cringe At

The 10 Most Popular Passwords Were The Ones System Administrators Cringe At:

123456 (15,820 instances)

123456789 (4875 instances)

1234 (3135 instances)

password (2212 instances)

12345 (2094 instances)

12345678 (2045 instances)

admin (1991 instances)

123 (1453 instances)

1 (1224 instances)

1234567 (1170 instances)

111111 (1046 instances)

To put that in perspective, the top 10 passwords, SpiderLabs said, make up around 2.4 per cent of the total password count. That may not seem like much — but it's significantly higher than the 0.9 per cent the group calculated from 2006, especially when you consider that there are vastly more web services, and therefore passwords required, than there were seven years ago.
