Last year on this date, I shared a post on my Facebook Page of Top 20 Passwords of 2017, which were gathered from 1.4 Billion clear text password hack.

This year is no different and dumb passwords are still to stay, lets analyse what people have been using this year. Do keep in mind that these passwords are gathered from various leaked hacked sources which are later shared on the internet.

Top 25 Passwords in 2018

There are plenty of old favorites – including ‘password’ – but this year many new ones are also visible.There’s no change to the winner. The top slot is retained by 123456, while #2 on the list is password.

Other top 10 places are taken by 12345, 1234567, 12345678 and 123456789, which is completed by 111111, sunshine, qwerty and iloveyou.

Sorry, Mr. President, but this is not news – using your name or any common name as a password is a dangerous decision

The new password entries this year are : 111111sunshineprincess, 666666654321[email protected]#$%^&*, charlieaa123456, password1 and qwerty123.

I hope there is no competition in the world where people are made to keep simple and easy to hack passwords ?
