If you're using one of these passwords, you're going to want to change that right quick and in a hurry.

The point of a password is to keep those that shouldn't be in your stuff, out of your stuff. So, why would you create a password like "123456" that links directly to your finances?

The password managing company SplashData tediously scrolled through a list of 5 million hacked passwords from different sites and breaches. They came up with a list of the worst of the worst as far as lazy passwords are concerned.
