    E-mail, social media, and other Internet accounts can be compromised if you have an easily hacked password. And for some, their passwords are so mainstream that a scammer could practically hack into their accounts by merely guessing the password. 

    SplashData, a password management tool developer, recently published the “scariest” passwords, those most at risk of being discovered by hackers. Here are the 10 worst passwords that made its list: 

    1. Password
    2. 123456
    3. 12345678
    4. abc123
    5. qwerty
    6. monkey
    7. letmein
    8. dragon
    9. 111111
    10. baseball

    To prevent a security breach from one of your passwords, security experts recommend using multifactor authentication whenever you can and never use the same password for your important accounts. Get more tips on choosing safer passwords: How to Keep Your Passwords Secure.
