The Most Popular Passwords Around the World!

Do not use these!

Cybersecurity is a topic for tech experts, but every layperson can also do his or her part in an area of cybersecurity that isn’t so hard to understand: safe passwords.

Among the most common passwords found in leaks in 2020 are the sneaky “qwerty”, the obvious “password” and the ubiquitous “123456” (or one of its many variations), which has led to lists of the most common password for some years.

So, if you find your password on this list published by security application provider North Pass, it might be wise to make a change.
