  • Here are the top three of the most popular passwords of my fellow countrymen:

    hpi.de/pressemitteilungen/2018/die-top-t...her-passwoerter.html


    1. 123456
    2. 12345
    3. 123456789


    For comparison, the 2017 hit parade:

    1. 123456
    2. 123456789
    3. 1234

    I´m pretty sure, in other countries the results are more or less the same. :-)

  • What happened to "password" ?
    That is my personal favorite (and no, that is not my password for the X# website ;))

  • Hi Robert,

    i thought you´re using "XShaRp" ?

    - for safety reasons of course case sensitive :-)

  • I heard at a training session that apparently "spammer" is one that cannot be broken by password hacking software...

    How much truth is in it I don't know, but something not too ordinary with a 3 try limit seems so far to work for me...

  • 3 try? Better a (exponentially) increasing waiting time ;)

  • The most popular german passwords in 2021 are:

    1.  123456                          
    2.  passwort                      
    3.  12345                             
    4.  hallo                             
    5.  123456789   
    6.  qwertz
    7.  schatz
    8.  basteln
    9.  berlin
    10. 12345678
    i´m wondering why e.g. "basteln" made it into the top ten. Perhaps, Germans associate trying to fix software issues with the word "basteln" ? ;-)

    Not mentioned is if the same password is used at all locations where a user logs in - but i´m pretty sure that ... :woohoo:

    For comparison the 2020 hit parade:
    1	123456	
    2	123456789
    3	passwort
    4	hallo123
    5	12345678
    6	ichliebedich
    7	1234567	
    8	1234567890
    9	lol123	
    10	12345
