For 2017, the world's most-hacked password is still "123456", followed by "Password".
Security company SplashData reveals that almost 3% of people used the worst password on the list, while nearly 10% have used at least one out of the top 25.
But according to SplashData, a password management firm, "starwars" made its debut on its list of worst passwords in 2017, coming in at number 16. Today it published its list of the worst 100 passwords of 2017, and some very familiar entries top it.

In addition to choosing strong, hard-to-guess passwords, many security experts recommend that people use a password manager and two-factor authentication to keep their credentials secure.
The importance of strong passwords has been drilled into the heads of many internet users since the start of the digital age.
Krebs added, "Two-factor authentication makes it much harder for password thieves (or their customers) to hack into your account just by stealing or buying your password: If you have 2FA enabled, they also would need to hack that second factor (usually your mobile device) before being able to access your account". Finally, it's important never to use the same password twice and to make sure you change passwords regularly, once per quarter, for example. You can create such password with the use of numbers, alphabets, uppercase and lowercase.
