Urban Tech Story | The most used password in 2022 is still password

NordPass has released a list of the most commonly used passwords for 2022, along with how long it will take to crack them. The most common passwords have not changed much from past years: password, 123456, 123456789, guest, qwerty, 12345678, 111111, 12345, col123456 and 123123. For unimportant passwords, most people choose numbers or phrases that are easy to remember. It takes less than a second to crack most common passwords, and a few can take 10 seconds or more, such as col123456. NordPass also released statistics related to password trends: The use of Oscars as a password increases significantly during Academy Awards season, as do passwords with the same name during popular movie and TV shows, such as batman, euphoria, and encanto.
