When it comes to passwords, we've all got at least 10. I try to keep mine consistent with everything I use because I forget them all the time. Well, the bad thing about this is if I don't have a strong enough password, someone will be able to hack into my entire life. So, how do you even know if you have a bad password? Start by making sure it's not on this list of the worst passwords of 2017.
SplashData took a look at over 5 million leaked passwords in 2017. Amazingly, the passwords "123456" and the genius "password" topped the list.
