The problem with good, secure computer passwords is you can never remember them.  That’s why people tend to stick with something easy or familiar.  Of course, hackers know we do that and it makes their job of ripping you off much easier.

123456 has been named the worst password of 2013.

Researchers at a security firm analyzed millions of stolen passwords posted online in 2013 to compile their annual list of the worst.

123456 topped the list knocking off password from the top spot… password had topped every list since it started.

According to SplashData, this year’s list was influenced by the large number of passwords stolen during Adobe’s well publicized security breach.

Password fell to second, followed by 12345678 and qwerty.
