SplashData has announced the 2015 edition of its annual “Worst Passwords List”.  As in the past, 123456 and password are the most popular. This is not good. The list confirms how people’s choices for passwords remain consistently risky. Longer passwords are beginning to appear but length is not enough. A good password has to be unrememberable. See my earlier stories, Password Hell and Are Password Managers Good or Bad? Also, see the full list of the worst 25 passwords compiled from a list of more than 2 million leaked passwords during 2015.
