Banks usually allow you to protect your credit/debit cards with a four digit number between 0000 and 9999. There are 10,000 possible combinations in that series, however, and not surprisingly, one particular combination is used by over 10% of us: 1234
In a study by Data Genetics, a sample of 3.4 million passwords was collected and they have published a list of top ten most and least used passwords. 1234 was on top of the most used list followed by 1111, 0000, 1212 and 7777. On the least used side you have 8068, 8093 and 9629.
Now just because these are the least used codes, does not mean that you should go out and change yours to one of these. After all, if you and I are watching this list, I’m sure someone with other motives is also looking at it.
