It's 2016 and idiots still use '123456' as their password

As to things like gaming consoles...

I set my mom up with a 123456 password simply because the XB1 I got for the younger siblings needs accounts (no password for them - no credit card and bogus email account setup where they don't know the password). Kids don't need to be in the settings (really mom doesn't) but I have to make it easy enough to walk my mom through when I send her an update disk (no internet out in the middle of the BFE they live). There's no card attached to the parent's acct. either and I have the password for that email in case someone messes that up.
