WorstPasswords-2013

Sadly enough, another year has come and gone with what ‘feels’ like little progress made on getting people to choose better passwords. Password management software maker SplashData has compiled a list of the 25 worst passwords of 2013, a ‘top offenders’ list that contains some old favorites along with some new entries as choices people should not be making.

You can read the full ‘report’ compiled by SplashData via the link below.
