List of 25 Worst Passwords of 2013 exposes internet users’ lack of creativity

Posted: Updated:
U.S. - The list of the 25 Worst Passwords of 2013 is out and there's a shake-up in which one's holding the top spot.

Time magazine reports that "1-2-3-4-5-6" now out ranks "password," which is usually number one.

Rounding out the top 10 are more numbers like “1-1-1-1-1-1,” the letters "Q-W-E-R-T-Y,” and "I love you."

SplashData, the company that gathers this information, says passwords like "Adobe1-2-3" are a good reminder that you should not base your password on the sites you use.
