A recent study claims that ‘123456’ has now taken the crown for world's worst password. Website SplashData said the six-digit figure has replaced its predecessor, yes you guessed it, ‘password’ as the most used and now worst password of 2013. New entries including ‘adobe123’ and ‘photoshop’ have made their way onto the list, after an attack on Adobe back in October, which caused the publication of passwords and encrypted payment information for 2.9 million customers. Passwords such as ‘letmein’, ‘monkey’, and ‘trustno1’ were in decline last year, coming in at 14, 17, and 24 on the list. SplashData has recommended users go for a password with a mix of characters, and one with eight or more in length. The site has also recommended avoiding the same username and password combinations across multiple websites. Below is the listing of worst passwords for 2013. 1. 123456 2. password 3. 12345678 4. qwerty 5. abc123 6. 123456789 7. 111111 8. 1234567 9. iloveyou 10. adobe123 11. 123123 12. admin 13. 1234567890 14. letmein 15. photoshop 16. 1234 17. monkey 18. shadow 19. sunshine 20. 12345 21. password1 22. princess 23. azerty 24. trustno1 25. 0
