Despite all the warnings, 23 million people worldwide use the password “123456” for their mobile devices and other tech gadgets, a report by UK’s National Cyber Security Centre reveals.

The staggering number was arrived at after the UK Cyber Security Centre analysed the ‘Have I Been Pwned’ data set to produce a list of the top 100,000 passwords used worldwide.

Looking through the full list, there’s a reasonable selection of expletives, and for Brits, variations on “Liverpool” appear twenty eight times. For non-Brits, Liverpool is not only a city in the North of England but a premier league football (soccer) team.
