A lot of us try to pick passwords that will be easy to remember but sometimes those passwords make us susceptible to hacking.

Each year SplashData releases the worst, most repeated passwords from more than 5 million passwords leaked in the last year. The site found that 4 percent of the passwords leaked last year—or 200,000 easily hacked passwords—were "123456." [Source]
