While one might think that there can not possibly still be anyone out there who would use incredibly easy-to-guess passwords like, for example, "123456", one would be wrong: according to a new study, that's still the most popular password in the world.
For the study, the team scoured 10 million passwords that became public through data breaches that occurred previous year.
Killing "123456" as a password choice will not much help: four of Keeper Security's top 10 passwords and seven of the top 15 use six characters, or fewer. As we see a growing number of attacks on private and public companies, and the use of data in phishing and identity theft cases, it's become ever so important to finally ditch the passwords that may have protected us in 2005 - or at least we had believed so.
If you are using "123456" as your password you are not alone.

Honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King

The top row of the keyboard, letters Q W E R T Y, is the third most common password. So did you change your password yet?
For more digital and social media news stay with WFLA News Channel 8's Lila Gross. This is stunning given that today's brute-force cracking software and hardware can unscramble those passwords in seconds. While "111111" was found to be the fifth favorite password among users, passwords like "666666" and "777777" came in a few places behind. "Almost 17 percent of users are safeguarding their accounts with '123456.' What really perplexed us is that so many website operators are not enforcing password security best practices", Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, says. "Website operators that permit such flimsy protection are either reckless or lazy". Itself confounded by this entry, Password Keeper consulted security researcher Graham Cluey to explain its presence.
What Keeper is suggesting is that operators and admins take greater control over user access and ban simple and short passwords from being used. "After all, it's in the users' best interests to do so". The company called on website owners to start enforcing stronger password policies. It isn't hard to do, but the list makes it clear that many still don't bother.Darren Guccione is CEO of Keeper Security. Consider using a password manager, and avoid using the same password over and over.
