The ‘worst’ passwords of 2020 unveiled — see if yours is one of them

It’s getting near the end of 2020, which means it’s time for information-security companies to release their “worst passwords of the year” lists. The first contender comes from NordPass, the password-management arm of NordVPN, and some familiar entries top that list.

The most common password of 2020, declares NordPass, is the succinct “123456,” with some 2.5 million instances in NordPass’s sample data set. The second, trailing far behind with a mere 961,000 instances, is the somewhat more complicated “123456789.” The venerable “12345”, of “Spaceballs” fame, doesn’t even appear until No. 8.
