These days you need passwords for everything from your email to your phone, and it can be hard to remember lots of different combinations of words and letters to safeguard your private data. 

For that reason, a lot of people tend to use the same passwords a lot of the time, and unfortunately are not very creative when it comes to inventing one that they're sure they will be able to remember.

SplashData make annual lists of the most popular passwords that have been stolen and made public throughout the year, and in case you needed any further confirmation that a lot of people are either stubborn or stupid (or both), these results are here to offer that proof. Yes, '123456' and 'password' still feature right up at the top, and if you;re using them as your password, then you're an idiot, but at least you're not alone in that.
