Wanna know my password? Ok, let me tell you!

Last week we wrote about kids who tend to share their passwords with friends. Now it’s time to admit that the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree. This video proofs that grown-ups can’t keep their passwords secret either:

You’d never fall for that one, right?

abc123 or 696969?

Keeping passwords secret surely seems to be a challenge for kids and grown-ups alike. Another tricky matter is coming up with a safe and memorable password.

SplashData has listed the most popular passwords in 2014. Very interesting read! For instance in 14th place is the password “abc123″ which includes both numbers and alphabets but clearly isn’t the most unique ever.

The top of the list is occupied by exquisite passwords like “123456”, “password” and “12345”.
Bubbling under is for instance the slightly dirty password “696969”. Up and coming are also the macho “mustang” and the superhero inspired “batman”. All these gems belong to the 25 most popular ones.

Can you find your passwords on the list? Make sure they are not there next year!
