We live in an age where digital security can be as delicate as a flower. 

Password manager and digital vault firm, Keeper Security, has revealed the most common passwords of 2016 and they really are embarrassingly shite. 

We are simple, simple people. 

No creativity, no complexity, no zest, no mystery. 

These are the top 10 passwords that were used in 2016: 

  • 123456
  • 123456789
  • qwerty
  • 12345678
  • 111111
  • 1234567890
  • 1234567
  • password
  • 123123
  • 987654321

Seriously?! 

A three-year-old could guess those... 

*changes password immediately*

Think you have one of the most complex passwords ever? Leave it in the comments below (he he he).
