Update: A quick update on this. Finding out more, this list only applies to your BlackBerry ID password and it's also not just BB10 - it's in the BlackBerry OS already.

RIM has always been tops when it comes to security, and BlackBerry 10 will be no different. There are plenty of baked-in features in the OS that will keep things as secure as possible. Among them is a list of passwords that you won't be able to use on your device. Some users always try to take the easy way out and use passwords like 123456 or password and think their data is still secure. Well a file has been uncovered in the BlackBerry 10 OS that holds over 100 passwords that are not allowed to be used. The list includes gems like 123abc, computer and of course, blackberry. From the looks of it the list can be updated at any time to stay on top of the game as well. Keep reading for the full bunch.

awesome only bad for stupid people ;)

Jonathank

should b an option on start up like when we choose the language and date... not even1 works for the FBI

shebmiller

LOL!!! this is awesome! I can just imagine being in the meeting that decided these unusable passwords

"we gotta cover all our bases, lets add f***you?"
"f***me?"
"Yeah, that one too"

DOCTOREVIL8

7 of my passwords are on that list. Oh man!

zoomzoom71

At least 'admin' can still be used. LOL

kb2755

That's a lot of Winnie the Pooh references.

Also, laughed at "butthead". My immaturity never ceases to amaze me.

Kessen

How about "asdfghjkl" or a short version of it?

eyhab27

interesting that playbook is in there, yet london, bold, curve are not.

eyhab27

lol i had to google what that was

lchampagnie

Only a true nerd would know what that is.

tdexter77

Yup....me too. I guess adding an A,b,C, D after ncc1701 is allowed though.

TheRealFixxxer

So they're just hating on Willy? :(

Innovatology

I don't like other people deciding this sort of thing for me. If I want an dumb password, that's my choice. If I don't want any password at all, that's my choice too.

Kat0908

Good thing we can still chose whether or not to enable password lock on the new BB10 devices.

simu31

I see the Trekkers got a look in too (NCC1701)!
And someone at RIM seems to be a Winnie the Pooh fan :) lol !

Si.

rgorman

wow... 'temp' didn't make it?

chosen1_88

I started laughing the moment I saw "batman" as a barred password. It just got funnier after that.

GeneralHerzog

canada and hockey?????

Seriously?

There are that many canucks using those two words that it's an issue? (and maybe a few swedes using hockey)

Some of them seems silly to even bother with. I just can't see eeyor being that widely used. I guess they would know but it still seems silly to have some of those words at all.

Balti43

*Wipes sweat off forehead* at least i can still use UnlocK

NickA

F***me? F***me??!! No, F***you!

All kidding aside, I would have never thought to use that as a password. Speaking of "password", good thing "passw0rd" is still available.

ungibbed

There are some rather odd ones on that list. No password I use is on it but you would think crackberry would have made the list...

robertdusa

Though a great idea, I see a minor flaw. That being, what if the only reason I have placed a password on the device is to keep my kid off of it? Or if I want to password 'protect' the device in a demonstration? In both these cases, I don't want or need a secure password. Obviously an IT policy would trump that desire for a casual use password.

I think a variation on this idea, would have the device state in plain speak that the password you've chosen will provide ZERO protection, and to have the user agree explicitly, and have the user understand that their agreement to such will be filed under their BBID (to avoid litigation from an idiot). If the user is serious about trying to lock down their device, then they'll disagree and be forced to chose a better password.

jenks5150

Lol. I would think "poohbear" on a 35 year old man's BB10 device would be a pretty damn safe/unimaginable password. Or...I hope it would be.

Mike1117

I'm guessing from #1 that the new passwords have to be 6 characters. My current one is only 4.

Balti43

Nope, "mike" made the list

Mike1117

So 123456 is no good but 1234 or 12345 will work???

Balti43

I was wondering that myself, seems rather silly unless its implied with the 123456 and 12345678.

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

I think if part of a forbidden password is attempted without any other characters added it will not be allowed.

bpmg4u

Looks like PENIS is still safe, despite its size and "that" 'older-than-the-internet' password joke ... LOLOLMAO!!!

NFLPLAYBOOK

What you can still use 11A2B. Star Trek fans are still safe. Lol.

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

God forbid its monday or Monday. Tuesday is ok though

advil_yum

I'm sorry, but this is stupid.
If dumb user wants to use dumb passwords, your device should not prevent that. Let I.T. lock you down and mandate password complexities, not RIM.

bambinoitaliano

I wouldn't be laughing so hard at others. It might inspire Kevin to start his own crackberry top 100 dumb passwords. You know there's gonna be a list there somewhere.

416to604

damn "qwerty" made the list... lol

Bold 9900 - Playbook 32GB - Lumia 800

r0v3rT3N

NOOO!
Why can't I use GANDALF?!
What type of cruel world is this?

Berinry

Does anyone believe there will be a feature to turn off the function where the phone will erase all data after ten failed password attempts?

That was always a snag that got me. I have eye witness friends playing with other pals BlackBerrys and accidently erasing the entire phone data because of this annoying feature.
It may be that it is super security but I will seriously be disappointed if they did not update this...as I call a snag. :/

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

I wish I could turn that off too. Especially since we have bb protect now and can remotely wipe it if its lost and we want it erased. The way it is your phone is never safe if unwanted hands in your circle get a hold of it. Even if you have it locked and someone grabs it you aren't safe. They can have the device wiped if they please. I.e practical jokes at the office, brother sister pranks,etc...

Devhux

Crackberry can still be used.....awesome! :)

RocPlayr

Surprised to see that "jesus" and "justme" didn't make the list.

Thebouldrant

Looks like a list regarding a specific device, on a certain IT policy. Can't imagine BlackBerry blocking these as unsecure passwords...who would guess ncc1701, seems pretty secure to me.

NerdBoss

"abc123" made it twice.....awesome

@NerdBoss514

Thrac Dark

Pls DO tell me the difference between #6 & #7. As for the list, you should also consider characters typed from right to left - there are plenty of languages which use this writing. Smth like lkjhg or gfdsa.
All in all, is priceless such a list.
I'm starting to love this OS, although i don't have a BB device, nor i have played with BB10.

Rootbrian

I use complex passwords. If you use any of those for your social networks, FOD GORBID, you'll get compromised EASILY.

Juanmabs22

3, 6 & 7 are the same D:

HartfordWhalers

I didn't see "Crackberry" on the list

linuxbbm

None of those password up there has mine :P

Rootbrian

The media is putting allot of negativity into the barred passwords. What assholes!!

Jonathank

WHY DONT THEY MAKE THIS AN OPTION WHEN SETTING UP THE DEVICE.... I UNDERSTAND IT SHOULD B THAT WAY FOR BIG BUSINESS PEOPLE, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF US.. DUMB DUMB DUMB
