(PCM) Let’s hope you don’t see one of yours on the list!  The threat of password stealing and cyber hacking is a huge threat and a major fear now that majority of our lives take place in a digital universe. SplashData has released their annual list of the ‘worst passwords’ that people still continue to use and are incredibly easy to hack/steal.

Still coming in at number one and number two respectively are “1234” and “password” and many people still continue to use the names of pets, children, birthdays, etc to protect their valuable online assets. SplashData urges people to make an attempt to create passwords that are more difficult to decipher and good ones should contain a solid mix of letter, numbers and symbols.

SplashData was able to create their annual list by looking at 3.3 million passwords that were leaked during a multitude of cyber hacks last year.
