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

6. monkey

7. 1234567

9. trustno1

10. dragon
