April 1, 2016
Firm Publication

Earlier this year we provided the top 25 worst passwords for 2015 compiled by cybersecurity firm SplashData. While we weep over our busted March Madness brackets, count the days until the NFL draft, and await the return of both Carli Lloyd and the Boys of Summer, online data privacy and security publication naked security reports that SplashData has now released the top 10 worst sports passwords of 2015:

  1. football
  2. baseball
  3. hockey
  4. soccer
  5. golfer
  6. yankees
  7. jordan
  8. chelsea
  9. rangers
  10. nascar

If you insist on using the name of a sport, team or athlete as part of your password, we recommend you be complex and creative, such as Ro!!erDerbY13* or cuRlinG#88}.
