The 50 Most Common Passwords You Should Never Use

Guys, you really, really need to get more creative.

In today’s day and age, having a weak password is pretty much like leaving your front door unlocked. You’re essentially inviting people to scam you, steal your identity, or (at the very least) send you droves of spam.

Of course, following the recommended guidelines and having a different password for every one of your sites seems like an impossible task, especially now that getting your own email account feels like hacking the database of a military compound (seriously, why do I have to do so much to convince my computer that I’m a human being?). But it pays to not be lazy, because scammers are only getting smarter.

Recently, Have I Been Pwned, a website that allows users to enter their password in order to find out if they have previously been compromised by data breaches, compiled a list of the 50 most common passwords that have been exposed to breaches. If you spot yours, or one very similar to yours, on this list—whether it’s for your email, your banking account, or anything else—then you want to change it asap. And for more great cyberspace security tips, check out This Is the Safest Way to Store Your Passwords.
