Is your password one of the top passwords in the country? We hope not, but we'll laugh if it's number 16.

Passwords are obviously very important, but they're also a huge pain in the butt. Right? Sometimes I wish my eyeballs or fingerprints could just get me into whatever account I'm trying to log into... instead of racing my brain to think of how many numbers I added to one of my generic passwords I should probably change more often.

Lucky for me, none of my passwords are on the list of the top 20 most popular passwords in the county, so I guess I can keep them.

However, if you find your passwords on this list, you might think about coming up with something new.

I will say... that 'guest' isn't the worst password for public wi-fi if you don't really care who's using it (which is hopefully why that took the number 1 spot), and that could be the case for the rest of the top 5.

  1. guest
  2. 123456
  3. password
  4. 12345
  5. a1b2c3
  6. 123456789
  7. Password1
  8. 1234
  9. abc123
  10. 12345678
  11. qwerty
  12. baseball
  13. football
  14. unknown
  15. soccer
  16. jordan23
  17. iloveyou
  18. monkey
  19. shadow
  20. g_czechout

But, I truly LOL-ed when I saw number 16.

You're telling me, the entire United States of America uses a Michael Jordan inspired password so often is landed on this list???

Kudos to you MJ, that is very impressive.

My final commentary is number 19, how did shadow make this list? I would love to know what inspired that one, and I also assume that number 20 is some sort of techy thing I don't understand.

How often do you change your passwords?
