BlackBerry 10 won’t let you use dumb passwords such as ’123456′ or ‘password’

In October, SplashData revealed the 25 worst passwords of 2012 and to nobody’s surprise, “password” and “123456″ took the top two slots. In a rather smart move, RIM (RIMM) is taking extra precautions to make sure nobody is foolish enough to use such weak passwords in its upcoming BlackBerry 10 operating system. According to RapidBerry, there are 106 common passwords that BlackBerry 10 just won’t allow you use. Words such as “blackberry,” “computer” and “qwerty” are banned. At this point, we’re not sure what’s more sad, the fact that RIM has decided to block certain words from being accepted as passwords or that people still don’t know how to choose proper passwords. The full list of 106 forbidden passwords follows below.
