If you're a bit unimaginative on the password front and always just pick the same, predicable one every single time, you might want to have a read of the most hackable passwords of 2015 and immediately change all your settings.

The information comes from Splashdata, who have once again announced their end-of-the-year selection of the worst passwords loads of people have been using.

Having a quick look through the list, it's pretty obvious why some of them are such weak ideas, although we've gotta say, number 16 is actually a bit of a surprise:

1. 123456

2. password

3. 12345678

4. qwerty

5. 12345

6. 123456789

7. football

8. 1234

9. 1234567

10. baseball

11. welcome

12. 1234567890

13. abc123

14. 111111

15. 1qaz2wsx

16. dragon

17. master

18. monkey

19. letmein

20. login  

21. princess

22. qwertyuiop

Most Popular

23. solo

24. passw0rd

25. starwars  

Their recommendation for making sure all your passcodes are strong, is to basically make them as long as possible while including a mix of lower and upper-case letters and numbers. Also, you should really make an attempt to mix your passwords up for each different account you make.

BYE, HACKERS.
