by Maria Gomez


2014 worst passwords [LIST], For the fourth consecutive year, SplashData has announced its list of the 25 most common passwords found on the Internet.

The shere amount of times they are used makes them the "Worst Passwords" and will expose anyone to being hacked or having their identities stolen.
SplashData's yearly list of the worst passwords shows we are kind of lazy about the whole ‚Äúdigital security‚ÄĚ thing. The 2014 top 25 passwords represented about 2.2% of passwords exposed.

696969, football, baseball, Batman and Superman are all new to the list.

Just take a look at the top 10 list:

1. 123456
2. password
3. 12345
4. 12345678
5. qwerty
6. 123456789
7. 1234
8. baseball
9. dragon
10. football

To make things worse, many of these bad passwords have been on the worst-passwords list for years.

Go here for the complete list.
