If you use ANY of these passwords, you better change them RIGHT NOW

Let me ask you a personal question, What's your Facebook password? What about your Amazon account? Netflix? Your bank account? OK, I lied. Please don't tell me.

Maybe you aren't as bad as these people giving away their passwords on national television, but please, please, PLEASE tell me you don't use "qwerty" or "password" or "123456" as your password to any online accounts. If you do, you already know what I'm going to say: You need to change it now.

But there are others that are just as bad. The Worst Passwords of 2014 list was just released and you need to make sure none of yours are on it.
