Recent hacking attacks have proven that most people don’t do a good job protecting their data online. Back in October, Adobe reported that its systems were penetrated by attackers who stole 38 million user accounts and passwords.

According BBC “123456” was the most popular password among the compromised Adobe accounts. About 1.9 million people used the sequence.

Just this week experts from Spiderlab said that they uncovered over 2 million stolen social media passwords from all over the world. In their report, Spiderlab concluded that “people still choose comfort over security” when choosing passwords.

Here are the 20 most popular passwords in the Adobe hack (and simliar to Spiderlab’s top 10):

  • 123456
