This is a follow up list to the top 200 worst passwords which we have HERE. This list shows the top 25 most common worst passwords used in Canada. This list was compiled by looking at recently hacked website information and filtering it by country; in this case Canada

most common worst passwords in Canada

We also took the extra step of putting this information into an algorithm that estimates how log it will take to crack each of these bad passwords. This is done through what’s called a brute force attack in which a hacker uses a list of thousands of known passwords, and tries each one of them, one at a time, until he succeeds. Brute force attacks could be easily defeated by either:

  1. using requiring two factor authentication (2FA/MFA) or
  2. limiting the number of failed attempts to three or four, before locking the account

This is a top 25 list but the 26th was so colorful we decided to extend the list a bit just for you:
