Passwords are an integral part of keeping your digital life safe and secure. Unfortunately, it’s all too common for passwords to end up leaked in a data breach, allowing hackers a look into which phrases people often use most. The more common the password, the more likely hackers can guess it to break into your accounts.

As reported by CNBC, passwords are access from the dark web all the time, often from leaked emails. As a matter of fact, according to Lookout, 80% of consumers have had emails leaked to the dark web. Statistically, you have emails, and, likely, passwords out there on the dark web. Hackers can use those passwords to attempt to break into as many accounts as possible. With Russian cyberattacks on the rise, it’s now more important than ever to use strong, unique passwords to protect your data.

These are the 20 most common passwords found on the dark web. If you currently use any of these passwords, consider changing them as soon as possible.
