The most commonly used iPhone passcodes are unsurprisingly predicable

IMG_0230The most common iPhone passcodes look fairly predictable – no surprises here I guess, as an iPhone passcode has some additional requirements on top of a normal password. It needs to be something that can be entered regularly and quickly, it’s something that’s going to be regularly entered in plain view of many different people (and in different levels of intoxication) so you don’t want to use something like your bank card pin, and finally a lot of people who’d care about security probably have little faith in an passcode protecting much data in the event of a real attack – it’s more about preventing your friends from using your phone to send drunken SMS messages from your phone when you’re both out drinking than any actual security mechanism. We need to change that.

Luckily or unluckily for Sam (pictured), his iPhone password was not one of the first few obvious combinations on the list - but that didn't stop me trying!
