It's amazing that some people still don't take password security seriously. Hopefully yours isn't on this list, because if it is you could be in for trouble.

Over the course of 2018 almost 5 million passwords were leaked online and the overwhelming majority of them were just useless as a security measure.

The Cybersecurity group SplashData has published their list of the 'Worst Passwords of 2018,' based on the 5 million leaked:

1) 123456

2) password

3) 123456789

4)12345678

5) 12345

6) 111111

7)1234567

8)sunshine

9) qwerty

10) iloveyou

11) princess

12) admin

13) welcome

14) 66666

15) abc123

16) football

17) 123123

18) monkey

19) 654321

20) !@#$%^&*

If you find that you use any of these, or a password that is in any way close to these change it immediately.

Your personal information could be at risk.

Start 2019 off with a clean slate and a secure online presence.
