SplashData , a company specializing in data protection, has compiled a list of the 100 weakest passwords in 2018 . The championship is already the fifth year in a row - again left behind the combination of the numbers " 123456 " (1st place) and the word " password " ("password"), which occupied the second line.

Anti-rating is based on more than five million key phrases leaked to the Internet over the past year. In 2018, donald (" Donald ") made his debut on the list, ending up in 23rd place. One of the most unsuccessful passwords of the year is located next to two other newcomers: " aa123456 " and " password1 ".

Morgan Slane, users do not learn from the mistakes of others, while continuing to put themselves at risk. Despite loud leaks that were widely publicized in the media (for example, the recent cyber attack on the Marriott hotel chain ), people continue to use simple, easily remembered alphanumeric combinations or celebrity names (for example, US President Donald Trump) as a code phrase, which is never should do.

The first ten anti-rating looks like this:

1. 123456
2. password
3. 123456789
4. 12345678
5. 12345
6. 111111
7. 1234567
8. sunshine
9. qwerty
10. iloveyou

Experts urge to be more careful and not to use the same password from mail, online banking and other online services. A secure password must be at least eight characters long, include upper and lower case numbers and letters, and special characters (for example, underscore , dollar, or percent ). Password managers, such as 1Password , LastPass or Dashlane, will help generate a reliable combination .
