And the #1 Worst Password for 2013 Is…

Sorry “password,” you are no longer the #1 worst password as of 2013. The big “winner” for the year is “123456”.



Other gems include “qwerty,” “abc123″ and “iloveyou”. (A full list is to the right, though No. 12 should actually be “admin” not “sunshine,” which is on the list twice.)

Several Adobe-related passwords broke into the hit parade, possibly as a “tribute” to the company’s well-publicized security issues last year.

“Seeing passwords like ‘adobe123’ and ‘photoshop’ on this list offers a good reminder not to base your password on the name of the website or application you are accessing,” SplashData CEO Morgan Slain said in a statement.

If you have problems coming up with a good password, use a utility such as “1Password” for iOS or OS X.
