The Most Common Passwords Of The Year

How good is your password? Heart Breakfast’s Ed and Rachel uncovered the most common passwords of 2015, and they're really obvious!

Have a think what your password is for Facebook, twitter and even those really old 'hotmail' accounts. Have you EVER actually changed them?

Then there's a good chance your password is in the the list for the most common passwords still in use in 2015.

The password "123456" is somehow, the most popular, followed by the word, "password"... Very inventive.

"Football", "welcome", "login" and "abc123" were also included on the list.

Newcomers to the list this year include "starwars" and "solo", coinciding with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
