Working in a highly compliant, data-protective and highly regulated environment as so many of our lovely clients do, you may be interested in the following article from a recent blog in the brilliant Huffington Post where they cite the most popular (and worst) password combinations we users adopt in our workplace which, from a security perspective, might be worth a minute or two of your attention….

Published annually by SplashData, the list of the “Top 25 Most Popular & Worst Password Combinations of 2015” has now been unveiled!  Surprisingly, there’s NO CHANGE in the number 1 spot in 2015 from the top spot in 2014. 

Can you guess what the winning PANTS PASSWORD COMBO is?

Doh!  Can it really get any simpler than 123456?  Apparently so…….

Take a look at the list below, compiled by Gizmodo and brought to us courtesy of Barton Technology (thanks for the heads-up Dominic) and make sure YOUR password isn’t PANTS!

1. 123456
2. password
3. 12345678
4. qwerty
5. 12345
6. 123456789
7. football
8. 1234
9. 1234567
10. baseball
11. welcome
12. 1234567890
13. abc123
14. 111111
15. 1qaz2wsx
16. dragon

18. monkey
19. letmein
20. login
21. princess
22. qwertyuiop
23. solo

Until next time……stay SAFE and keep FIT!

To your continued success
