One of the first security safeguards online is a strong password. And there, some people use ignorance or idle passwords that are easy to guess. Easily approachable passwords are called weak passwords. Many people think, why would anyone hack his account? And what is the harm! Lucky password may not be hacked even after giving a weak password. However, those passwords may appear in the annual list of the most vulnerable passwords in SplashData, which means they may be leaked.

For the fifth time this year, software maker SplashData has published the list of the weakest passwords, analyzing nearly 100,000 passwords that have been leaked to the Internet. The company creates commercial password management software for Internet and software security.

Despite the phenomenon of user information in big IT companies such as Facebook, a large part of Internet users are not yet aware of the use of passwords. This is because ‘123456’ and ‘password’ are at the top of the list of most frequently used passwords in the last five lists.

It is difficult to remember with many different and powerful passwords on many websites. That’s why SplashData CEO Morgan Slain recommends using a particular password manager software. He said, “Nowadays, browsers like Google Chrome, Safari and Opera already offer password management.
