Worst Passwords of 2017

Nowadays, we need a password to login into our email system, another password to login into the network, another for the payroll application, another for the CRM, and so on. Because of that, we are tempted to use simple easy to remember passwords which we know we will not forget.

That said, we put together a list of the worst passwords used during 2017 and how they compare with the worst password rankings of previous years. You may be surprised
