123456! QWERTY! Password! These are some of the 500 worst passwords listed down by Dave Kleiman in his book Perfect Password: Selection, Protection, Authentication. Hilarious to see some of the passwords listed down there – one of them being ZZZZZZZ!!


On a serious note, if your password is one of the 500 listed ones, you must think of something better and change it right away! Securing your GMail or any other email will be useless if you have one of these passwords.

Let me know if any of your passwords is listed above!

    My password is two completely random words in two different languages (that I don’t speak) with loads of completely random numbers chucked in between letters and various other symbols. I do well to remember it myself! 😉

    Why should we “let [you] know if any of [our] passwords [are] listed above”?* 😛

    You want everyone to see them? 😀

    Anyway, for making quick accounts somewhere my password manager, LastPass, generates and saves them. If it is a site I frequent, I can make a special unique password for each site name. 😛

  • Reefah

    mine is a word i made up from the combination of
    a) a dead language
    b) a language i dont speak
    c) its not even a real word but makes perfect sense in my mind

  • Anon

    And that’s why you use random words/numbers on your password.

  • Matt

    Any password is a good one. Someone still has to guess it. My password could be abc123 but who’s going to pick that word out of the 50 billion combiations of letters and numbers available.
