The 25 most common passwords

With cybersecurity threats on the rise, having a safe and secure password is increasingly important to protecting your online presence. NordPass compiled a list of 25 passwords that are most commonly used. 

A group of independent researchers compiled the list using a 4TB database collecting data from 50 countries. Alongside the most common passwords, they also found that many people use their own names as a password and others use swear words, with men using them more frequently than women. The word dolphin was the top-used animal related word. 

According to research conducted in 2021, here are the 25 most common passwords worldwide:
