Why even have a password?

Following is Time Magazine's "25 Most Popular (and Worst) Passwords of 2011". Hard to believe that people even bother to enter this sort of nonsense - no offence intended. :)

If you find your password on this list I suggest that you learn how to create strong passwords or perhaps use a password manager like LastPass. You might thank me some day if you do. :)


  1. Hi Bob,

    My problem is that I have so many passwords, I have a hard time remembering them all! And, NO, none of them are on that silly list! LOL!

    How are you and Ann doing? :)

  2. Whew, I'm "safe". Sometimes its hard to remember so many different passwords. I know its for our own good but its such a pain.
    Thinking of you and Ann today. praying she continues to get stronger.

  3. I was worried about forgetting passwords, too, but my browser keeps them for me...don't know if that is a good or bad thing:(

  4. Some need to be changed every 90 days. I didn't make your list....

    My thoughts are with you and Ann today too.

  5. I liked football. Mine is kansasbob2011

  6. LOL at jrchaard!

    I hope anyone using one of those type passwords reads the article. It reminds me of when I was working in IT and installing some new software on everybody's computer. One person was out sick and I got tired of waiting for her to come back so I hacked into her computer by guessing her password. If I can do it ----- anyone can. BTW, my password is BruceRocks. ;)
