Swordfish !

Apparently, 123456 has been named the worst password of 2013 (or almost any year, you might have thought…).

SplashData compiled the of the 25 most commonly used passwords, compiled from files containing millions of stolen passwords posted online last year.

The full SplashData list of worst passwords:

(1) 123456
(2) password
(3) 12345678
(4) qwerty
(5) abc123
(6) 123456789
(7) 111111
(8) 1234567
(9) iloveyou
(10) adobe123
(11) 123123
(12) admin
(13) 1234567890
(14) letmein
(15) photoshop
(16) 1234
(17) monkey
(18) shadow
(19) sunshine
(20) 12345
(21) password1
(22) princess
(23) azerty
(24) trustno1
(25) 000000

The suprise omission for me – and probably for other fans of old Marx Brothers movies – is  ‘swordfish‘.  Everyone knows the password is swordfish !
