How Easy Is It to Get People to Tell You Their Online Passwords? This Easy

Is this normal? Are these normal people? They are! But this is Hollywood. And this is the internet. There’s nothing to worry about. Not even Sony would be worried.

You’d think after the highly publicized hacks against the movie industry that people would know the value of cybersecurity. If you think about how many businesses, governments, and individuals have fallen victim to hacking, you’d want to create the most complex, intricate, complicated and unguessable password in the world.

Don’t be dumb like these people! Choose a complicated password.

But Jimmy Kimmel is correct. People aren’t careful enough with passwords on the internet. According to i100, the 25 most popular passwords are:

  1. 123456
  2.  password
  3. 12345
  4. 12345678
  5. qwerty
  6. 123456789
  7. 1234
  8. baseball
  9. dragon
  10. football
  11. 1234567
  12.  monkey
  13. letmein
  14. abc123
  15. 111111
  16. mustang
  17. access
  18. shadow
  19. master
  20. michael
  21. superman
  22. 696969
  23. 123123
  24. batman
  25. trustno1

At least no one in the video is using any of these passwords. As dumb as they are to reveal their passwords on TV, they aren’t totally hokey. Dragon! Monkey! Superman! I like some of these so much that I think I’ll use them.
