Throughout the years, there have been a handful of passwords that are consistently ranked on lists as being the most common passwords. Using any of the passwords on this list, or similar ones, can be detrimental to the security of your accounts. Hackers are aware of these common passwords and often they are some of the first ones they use to try to hack into your account with.

That is why it is important to be aware of the most common passwords, and ensure yours is not as easy to crack as these:

  1. 123456
  2. 123456789
  3. qwerty
  4. password
  5. 1234567

Some other honorable mentions on the list from Team Password include:

  • iloveyou
  • 111111
  • admin
  • qwerty123
  • qwertyuiop
  • lovely
  • welcome
  • princess
  • michael
  • sunshine
  • passw0rd
  • nothing
  • biteme


These types of passwords, and variations of them, are not secure. Keeping your accounts secure should be one of your first priorities when dealing with cybersecurity.
