The Worst Passwords of 2019

Using strong, unique passwords is a simple and effective way for everyone to keep their online accounts secure. Unfortunately, despite numerous warnings and seemingly unending headlines about new, devastating data breaches, people are often unwilling to adopt this practice in their daily lives. 

In a year-end rundown, security researchers compiled a list of the worst commonly used passwords in 2019. Predictably, “12345,” “test1,” and “password” all made the top five most popular passwords. Other passwords included simple number combinations, popular female names, and horizontal or vertical letters or numbers on a QWERTY keyboard. It’s clear that millions of people can take a simple step to improve their defensive posture, and, when coupled with other easy-to-use features like two-factor authentication, they can promote a robust defense of their digital environment.
