COMMUNICATION AND PR OFFICER

Here it is ladies, gents, and rascals: the ultimate list of funny passwords ever encountered online! Browse through every funny idea someone ever had, delight yourself with funny face-palm moments from sysadmins, and smirk to your heart’s content!

Passwords are something we all struggle with, since we need so many of them and, for security reasons, they need to be different. (If you’ve been using the same password for several accounts, I won’t judge you, but you need to fix this ASAP because you’re vulnerable to credential stuffing attacks).

A word of caution first: There are plenty of online blogs publishing similar lists of funny passwords or Wi-Fi user names and so on. Some users might feel encouraged to actually use these for their accounts when they lack inspiration for what password to set. Maybe you also think that if you set a funny password, it will be easier to remember it later on.

I cannot stress enough what a dangerous strategy this is. First of all, hackers are continuously trying out all account and password combos they can get their hands on. Just like in those credential stuffing attacks linked above. That means that once a password idea appeared in text form somewhere online, you can be sure it will get uploaded into a credential stuffing script sooner or later.

Second of all, if that password makes sense to the human mind (if it’s semantically logical), then it’s not a very secure one. Obviously, funny passwords aren’t made up of random strings of varied characters and numbers, such as security guidelines suggest. So, as much as I feel your frustration, I believe I should insist that you don’t pick an easy to remember but funny password. Here’s our password security guide for creating a strong password in case you don’t know where to start.

web comic xkcd about password strength

‘Password strength’, from my favorite webcomic source, XKCD.

That being said, this doesn’t mean we can’t share a laugh about all the funny passwords that can be found online. Here are my absolute faves, compiled from all over the world wide web, from crazy stories from friends and coworkers and so on:

A. Passwords for really forgetful people

1. password
2. ineedapassword
3. changeme
4. secret
5. iamforgetful
6. newpassword
7. IamACompleteIdiot
8. nothing
9. nothingagain
10. iforgot
11. whydoialwaysforget
12. qwerty
13. asdf
14. aslpls (old-school mIRC users will remember this)
15. user
16. YouWontGuessThisOne
17. PasswordShmashword
18. youmoron
19. doubleclick
20. iamnottellingyoumypw
21. masterpassword
22. yetanotherpassword
23. nomorepasswords
24. password123
25. myonlypassword
26. cantremember
27. dontaskdonttell
28. memorysucks
29. earlyalzheimers
30. passwordforoldpeople

Do these all seem kind of dumb? I personally know of at least a few real-life examples of businesses which used one or more passwords from the list so far. But don’t judge! The truth is, we’re not meant to remember long strings of chars effortlessly. That’s why 2FA and password managers help.

B. Passwords with movie or pop culture references

58. SpaceTrooper

F. Funny passwords reported by sysadmins and other IT people

As a system admin, you sometimes have to ask people for their passwords and many times the insights you get are crazy funny. Here are the best such stories on funny passwords, gathered up from sysadmins all over.

556. A man going through a divorce had set his password to something like ‘DIEMcConnellDIE’, where ‘McConnell’ was the name of his wife’s divorce lawyer.
557. A sysadmin who wanted to poke a bit of fun at a new team member routinely sets their initial password to ‘why’, resulting in hilarious dialogues. ‘What’s the password?’ / ‘Why’ / ‘Because I need to do work’ / ‘Why’ etc.
558. A company’s sales department actually encouraged users to set their password to ‘sales’. Seriously. I hope I don’t need to stress again how dangerous such password-setting habits are.

advice to set your password to sales
559. Another company was routinely setting new passwords to balls1. Talk about professionalism.

company setting a bad default password
560. Yohohoandabottleofrum (my personal fave from a sysadmin acquaintance).

How about you? What funny passwords did you encounter (or maybe even used yourself, back when you were an internet baby)?

Set up your password `incorrect`. And every time a stranger tries to break into your system, it says “Your password is incorrect”.

when i changed my dads wifi password i set it to
“idontknowandifbiopenup”

Haha 🙂

Dean Ambrose Brown Leather Jacket on October 29, 2019 at 11:39 am

Thanks for the comment. Yeah, the versions of this joke are always on-spot. 🙂 That’s why 2FA is a less annoying alternative to super-safe passwords, for most users.

@zappediacomputer….1980 wants their joke back

Hi, The topic which you are taken is really awesome. Thank you for this article
