The third most popular option was the literal password alejandra, a woman's name, popular in western countries. 18 people do not distinguish the original thinking. Their password was set of numbers from 1 to 9. However, the most popular was a simpler version of the 12345.

The longest password was lafaroleratropezoooooooooooooo, which could fit as many as 30 characters, and the title of the shortest got smiley. :)

The remaining passwords usually are a combination of letters, their different registers and numbers. In 90% of cases, they really are complex and unique, but that did not stop hackers to gain access to the personal data of the users.
