A global security firm has revealed the most common passwords used by Australians, with shockingly weak and predictable passwords topping the list.
Nord Security compiled a list of 200 passwords used in 2021, ranking them by the number of times they have been used.
The firm found “123456” was the most common password used by Australians, with the combination recorded a whopping 308,000 times.
The second most preferred password was simply “password”, which featured 191,800 times and would take a hacker just one second to crack.
