This Dress Features The Worst Possible Passwords

Bad Password dress

Want to get an idea of what passwords not to use? You simply have to look at Lorrie Cranor’s bad password dress. She gathered information on the weakest and most commonly used passwords, used a word cloud tool, and edited the design to create a dress showing off a whole bunch of password no-nos. Some examples from the print: 12345, password, princess, and abc123. There are a ton more that might make you rethink your current choices.

Want to make a dress or tote out of the bad password fabric? You can buy it on Spoonflower.
