We can all remember that first time we had to come up with a password, probably for our Club Penguin or Stardoll account back in the day. 

After a bit of analysis of the leaked Yahoo database took place, it was revealed what the 10 most popular passwords people are using these days are.

They're about as secure as you'd expect...

1. 123456

2. password

3. welcome

4. ninja

5. abc123

6. 123456789

10. qwerty

Are you using any of these? If so, we'd really recommend you change your password immediately.
