Top 25 Most Common Passwords List Unveiled

If you’re using one of these passwords, it’s probably time for a change.

A new list of the 25 most common passwords of 2013 was released on Tuesday.

The password management company Splash Data put it together using data that hackers have posted online.

There’s a new number-one this year – 123456

It unseats password atop the list.

Among the notable newcomers to the list:

  • adobe123
  • admin
  • photoshop
  • princess

Another is “azerty,” which is the top line of the most common keyboard layout in France.

By the way, the American version “qwerty” is up a spot this year to the fourth most common password.
