These are the most common passwords of 2020

0

We are in year 2020, therefore we cannot be still using passwords such as “123456”. Though using “password” or “12354” is considered more of a meme than an actual password that people use nowadays, Nord’s list proves otherwise.

NordPass recently published a list of the 200 worst passwords of 2020, along with details on how many times the password has been used and exposed. The website also included rank changes from the previous year and the time it takes to crack the particular password.

The results showed the top password for the year was “123456”. In second place, things weren’t much better with “123456789”. The actual word “password” landed in fourth place, while “12345” showed up in eighth place. Meanwhile, new additions to this year’s top ten most common passwords were “picture1” and “senha”.

The list ranks passwords according to how common they are — a metric that also essentially measures how bad they are since a good password by definition is unique and complex. Passwords that made it into the top 20 were exposed millions of times in breaches and shared by thousands (if not millions) of users.
