The 25 Most Popular Passwords of 2017

More than five million leaked passwords are consists only two choices, its “123456” and “password.” According to SplashData’s seventh annual list, this year’s most popular list also includes “starwars,” “monkey,” “iloveyou,” “whatever,” and “freedom,” to name a few. Most aptly, perhaps, is the new addition “letmein,” and most ironically includes “trustno1.”

Here is a list of 25 most popular password of 2017 collected by SplashData from hacked passwords data. This data was hacked and made public by hackers. A password is marked as new by SplashData if it didn’t appear in the previous year’s list.

SplashData hopes this list will encourage people to take better safety precautions online. But according to the data from this year and years past, we are still a bunch of idiots—our astonishingly weak passwords at the mercy of even the most amateur hackers.
