This list of the worst passwords of 2015 was amusing. My family is always warning me that my passwords aren’t very good. The problem is that I hate passwords. I hate having to manage them. I know there are various utilities to make it easier, but those have their own requirements and complexities. I can’t wait for the day when everything has biometric identification.
Anyway, I got a chuckle out of the password that is, according to the list, the fourth-worst of 2015 (after the obvious “1234556” and “password” and the slightly less obvious “12345678”): “qwerty” – you know, the name of the keyboard. I suppose those are all pretty easy to guess. I don’t think you could use them for most web sites anymore anyway, because you almost always have to include a numeral and a special character. Perhaps “qwerty123456?”
