And your worst PIN number choice is...

There are 10000 different 4-digit PIN numbers for your ATM card, but it looks like that 11% of users prefer something really predictable like 1234.

This at least what a research by Data Generics showed, after having analyzed 3.4 million PIN passwords, letting us know what the most common of them were:

1234

1111
0000
1212
7777
1004
2000
4444
2222
6969

According to the same research over 20% of the passwords are listed on the Top 10 of the most common passwords, while 26,83% of these could be easily guessed if someone used one of the 20 most popular choices. The same research showed that choosing a password that starts with 19 (your year of birth) is a bad choice. What's the solution now guys? First of all, change NOW your PIN number into something less popular, like these numbers:

8068
8093
9629
6835
7637
0738
8398
6793
9480
8957

 

Obviously after having been posted here, these suggestions are not that... unpopular as you can see.
