I had a vendor demonstrate an online application they were selling me, and their password for the full admin account was "p"

"Letmein." Simple, classic.

Best password something simple, like "password" and then to rearrange your keyboard layout. I use Dvorak, but my keyboard still reads QWERTY, so anyone would be pissed off cuz they can't even type right.

Not really a computer password, but I've opened a briefcase once (by accident, I swear) by choosing the combination "007" on those number locks.
And there's this place I work where the boss asked the TI guys to assign the company's name as a login (let's just call it COMPANY) and put the same name again as a password, easier for him to remember, right? Well, after trying to log in, he had to call the TI guys again. "Well, it's working here, sir, 'COMPANY' as a login and 'THESAMENAME' as a password".

Also, "please." I discovered that it was a backdoor to a security program I used years ago.

Apparently, the most common 4 digit code (selected by men) for alarms, ATMs, etc is 6969. I know people who use their company name initials, followed by 6969 for their password.

My favorite is one I use when I have to reset people's passwords myself because they either forget them or their account locks.

"none." Minus the quote marks, of course.

Besides 1234 and 000000, I've had to say the lamest I've seen is "welcome".
Birthdays, cats, combines birthdays, their username.
Makes me think I'm a hacker but really really I'm not that smart. Hee. Just aware.

I have to admit just using my phone number. Whether it be my home number or cell number. Just an easy way to remember.

Their big feature release is copy and paste??? That's part of the iPhone OS!! The fact is 1Password still isn't really integrated into Mobile Safari (it isn't their fault, but it still sucks). The bookmarklet feature is worth maybe 99 cents at best, but $5.99? That's crazy!

This one is for real...
Someone I know's password is, I kid you not.... imsohot. Wow. Even I had to stop and think... who are you trying to convince, yourself or someone else?

Just like the movie in the movie, the stupidest password is swordfish

about no password when you log into a Windows machine, or how about the irony of "security"

lamest dumbest passwords
I am so bad in remembering passwords so to make it easy, I always use the first name of the person I am dating followed by 69.
For my bank account, I had as a username my SS# and the password was my Year of birth.
Yeah, I know its risky but I never forget my login info and hasn't been breached.....<crosses fingers>

for me it would have to be "admin".... a weak admin account password LOL (Yes its real one i've encountered on servers i've done stuff on)

Count me in for another "admin" as password. For the admin account. At a software company I was consulting with.
The particular system this account was used for didn't need to be all that secure. But once you logged into the system, there was a back door into the entire company's user accounts. They never knew that a lowly consultant for an application the company didn't care about could have reset the passwords of everyone in the company.
