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

Re: It's hopeless

Not necessarily - the top 25 passwords are ALWAYS going to be this collection of mindmeltingly simple passwords, even if the percentage of users using them is .01%. Good passwords are not going to be commonly used. So even if there's only a handful of people worldwide using 123456 because educating users on best security practices has been successful beyond anyone's wildest fantasies, this article can still be trotted out annually nearly verbatim.
