Password loginOur passwords are bad, and we should feel bad about it: Every year, SplashData releases a list of the most popular passwords discovered in data breaches released online over the past 12 months. And this year, “123456” and “password” topped this list.

Just like last year. And the year before that.

Other popular choices this year were sports, like “football” and “baseball.” And “starwars,” a newcomer to the list, ranked as the 25th most popular breached password, probably thanks to excitement over the release of the newest movie in the franchise.
