If you want to avoid getting hacked, you may want to consider avoiding these popular and not so creative passwords. 

Trying to remember passwords can be one of the most annoying things on the planet. Matt uses an app called Keepersecurity to store all of his. He currently has 39 different passwords. Many of us have an extensive list to remember, and because the task is so tedious, some individuals resort to using ones that they're not likely to forget. This is not the smartest thing to do.

When it comes to creating passwords, being clever, creative, and unpredictable is the way to go. For example, if you're favorite food is pizza, don't use that word; instead choose a food you hate. Matt would probably use "ryebread" in one of his passwords.
