NordPass released a 2021 report on the most popular passwords in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as well as in 49 other countries. The report also covers a worldwide overview and surprisingly the UAE’s most popular password is the SAME as the top password in 43 countries out of 50 analyzed. Crazy!

People choose easy number combinations, variations of qwerty, and in the UAE, women tend to use positive words as passwords, such as “pretty”, “flower”, and “sunshine” more often than men. That is the case in most of the analyzed countries.

How do they know this?

The list of passwords was compiled in partnership with independent researchers specializing in research of cybersecurity incidents. They evaluated a 4TB-sized database.

Researchers classified the data into various verticals, which allowed them to perform a statistical analysis based on countries and gender.

With regard to the gender vertical, the researched data was classified by gender only if it included a gender key. If the breached data didn’t contain the data key, it was classified as “unknown”.
