The Ultimate List of Funny Passwords Ever Encountered

funny password ideas

Here it is, ladies, gentlemen, 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. 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.

‘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:

Tham Khảo Thêm:  Calculation of Entropy Change

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

  1. SayHelloToMyLittleFriend
  2. HastaLaVistaBaby

  26. IAmMrRobot
  27. WinterIsComing
  28. SpaceTrooper
  29. BeamMeUpScotty

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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

  1. Another company was routinely setting new passwords to balls1. Talk about professionalism.

  2. Yohohoandabottleofrum (my personal fave from a sysadmin acquaintance).

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

If you’re sitting on top of a funny one you haven’t seen some variation of above, please do share in the comment field below. I’d really love to hear more!
