We know it's difficult to do what they tell you; use a mixture of lower and upper case letters, numbers, symbols, letters of the greek alphabet, hieroglyphics...but seriously, are people still using password as their password?

According to SplashData, a password management app maker, it seems they still are. Using data from stolen passwords that were then released online, they have compiled a list of the 25 worst passwords of 2011.

Entry no.9 is probably the most ironic, and as for no.18, you're not as clever as you think you are...

1. password

2. 123456

3. 12345678

4. qwerty

5. abc123

6. monkey

7. 1234567

8. letmein

9. trustno1

10. dragon

11. baseball

12. 111111

13. iloveyou

14. master

15. sunshine

16. ashley

17. bailey

18. passw0rd

19. shadow

20. 123123

21. 654321

22. superman
