Don’t use these passwords!

Keeper has posted it’s list of the most commonly used passwords of 2016, and it looks a lot like the 2015 list!

According to the security website, “Nearly 17 percent of users are safeguarding their accounts with “123456.” What really perplexed us is that so many website operators are not enforcing password security best practices.”

Keeper based their data on 10 million passwords that became public through data breaches in 2016.

“Four of the top 10 passwords on the list – and seven of the top 15 – are six characters or shorter.

Website operators that permit such flimsy protection are either reckless or lazy.”
