The password is often our first line of defense in protecting our precious files, whether online or offline. The longer and messier it is, the better for your data's security.

The thing is, while some of us take pride in making one that not even Sherlock Holmes can crack, others are still dumb (or lazy?) enough to settle with something even your 10-year-old nephew can solve, making them prime candidates to be the stars of the next leaked grainy sex video.

It's kinda sad actually; you'd think that, after all the big time hacking that has happened in recent years, we'd be more digitally prepared. But, alas, that's not the case.

Here's proof: SplashData, a company that specializes in password management and security apps, compiled a list of 2014's most popular (a.k.a. worst) passwords based on the millions of passwords that were leaked last year. And, by golly, the Top 5 will really have you scratching your heads.
