Cybersecurity experts named the worst passwords of 2019. Qwerty is popular again

"123456" holds the first place for six years in a row.

SplashData has released the traditional list of 100 “worst” passwords for 2019. Cybersecurity experts relied on an analysis of more than five million combinations that leaked into the public domain.

The first place compared to 2018 has not changed. “Qwerty”, “123123”, “qwerty123” gained popularity, while “welcome” and “princess” noticeably lost ground. For the first time in the history of compiling a list that has been published since 2010, “password” has left the top three.

The passwords “1q2w3e4r”, “qwertyuiop”, “123qwe”, “dragon” and “lovely” became new in the ranking. The “donald” that appeared last year disappeared from the top.
