List Rules Vote up the most wow *facepalm* passwords.

If you were alive in the '90s, you probably believed the film Hackers was spot on about the three most common computer passwords being “love,” “sex,” and “god.” Maybe that was true in the 20th century, but since then computer users have become a more discerning group of individuals. And by discerning, I mean lazy. SplashData posted their annual list of the most common passwords and it’s almost embarrassing to read the most used passwords that so many people believed would hide their dirty little secrets and protect their bank accounts.

Whether they were using the unbreakable code of “123456” or the very cheeky, “letmein” Internet users in 2015 were guarding their information with some of the worst passwords that have ever been created. I'm not saying you’re a horrible person if you use simple passwords, but if your password is on this list, you need to rethink your life.

This collection of the most popular passwords was culled from massive amounts of leaked data, including the Ashley Madison hack, so you know everything on this password list was created by a genius. If you find that you’re protecting your information with anything on this common password list, go and change your passwords now. (Actually, you should probably do that anyway just to be safe.)
