Avoid from List of Top 10000 Passwords for Secure Password

Here is top 100 passwords used frequently by users. I prepared this from the top 10000 most common passwords list I found on the web with difficulty. Besides the most preffered passwords list, I also added a few suggestions for users to have a more strength password to keep their accounts secure.

Here are a list of passwords that you should never use! Of course if you want to avoid your website, email account or other accounts to be hacked.

In this guide I am sharing top 100 passwords from the most common 10000 passwords excluding some of them list with you. Please note that you should never never never use any of them on your PC, on the internet, etc. Since all hackers are aware of such a list that contains common passwords people prefer to use just because of easy to remember, etc, using any of these passwords will be an open vulnerability for your account and an easy target to be hached. Hackers will start using these passwords to hack into your account.

Be sure that you don't have an habit to use passwords similar to shown on the below top common passwords list. Check and control that your passwords are not on the list.

Since most of the time the only thing preventing your accounts like public email addresses is your password, so it is best option to choose a strong password.

By the way, there are alot of online password strength checking tool on the web. I believe it is not safe to test your real password on these sites. It is not because I don't trust those web sites, but the web traffic you are generating can be tracked somehow. I think it is safe to try similar strings instead of your password if you really wonder how your password strength is.

I have also generated a password creator code for SQL developers. If you are interested in it you can check it as SQL Password Generator to Create Random Password

Just a note for secure passwords. A secure password should contain at least one item from each of the following categories:
uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers and special characters like '%&$*-+?' etc.
Please avoid repeating same characters, or using sequential numeric or alphabetical values like 123 or aBc, etc.
Since in general users prefer to use a single special character at the end of the password, try to be one of those users. Keep at least one special character additionally in the middle of the password character list.

Keep the password length at least at 8 characters. Ten character passwords, or best keep it at 14 characters.
