The Most Popular Passwords Revealed


As an avid reader of this site, you have undoubtedly seen any one of our many posts about cyber security.  Today’s infographic from Statista shares the most common passwords in use, as revealed by leaks from hackers.  Password security is one of the most basic and fundamental things you can do to keep from being a victim of cyber-crime.  In fact, as Statista rightly points out, “using an easy to remember password doesn’t seem like a big deal until finding out that a popular hacking method actually uses a bot to try out a number of common passwords until one sticks.”  Indeed….Stay safe and have a Happy Friday!!

Hat tip to Statista.
