A file, named rockyou.txt, has the 14 or so MILLION most used common passwords that are in a text file.
These are the easiest brute force break-ins available.
AND they are used all the time.
To see if your passwords are on this list go here and download it, though you are forewarned:
it’s 133 mb in length.
If any of your passwords are on that list, I’d change immediately.

If someone wants to guess my password, first they have to guess which language it’s in.
Corporate America consists of totalitarian entities laser-focused on short-term greed.

That’s still not something the Russian hackers dare type in, right? 🙂
Lol, I read a spy novel once where a high ranking member of British intelligence always assumed that his car might be bugged, so he’d express obscene thoughts about the personal habits of Russian governmental luminaries, so as to force those spying on him to have to write them down, and include them in their report.

Pwned Passwords are 613,584,246 real world passwords previously exposed in data breaches. This exposure makes them unsuitable for ongoing use as they’re at much greater risk of being used to take over other accounts. They’re searchable online below as well as being downloadable for use in other online systems. Read more about how HIBP protects the privacy of searched passwords.
If, and it’s a serious if, you trust this site, which is well known, then you can type in a password to see if it’s on the list.
I trust the site, but I wouldn’t test a banking or credit card password on it. Lol, maybe test ones old site Voldemort one.
