Passwords are a pain to remember.

Between emails, Instagram, Facebook, and many other websites, it's not easy to keep track of all our passwords.

Which leads many of us to be lazy with our security and use the same short, memorable words across multiple apps and websites.

So, if you are someone that uses the same password for everything and maybe chucks a number on the end every once in a while then you need to switch it up — because there are some daunting new figures that might make you rethink your strategy.

Have I Been Pwned is a website that tracks all data breaches associated with passwords.

And they have just revealed the top 100 passwords that have proved to be most vulnerable.

Without further ado, here's the wall of shame... If your passwords are on it, you should probably change them... like, right NOW:
