In an age of mandatory password complexity and burgeoning biosensory protection, the idea of a four-number PIN for the ATM seems almost quaint. That doesn’t excuse the fact that the most popular PIN is still, yes, 1234. Come on, people.
The following list of most-used ATM PINs comes compliments of a company called DataGenetics, and it’s a morbid look into humanity’s uninventive soul. And, yes, most-used also means easiest to crack. If you’re currently employing one of these — or, worse yet, your birthday — please stop! Or don’t and let me borrow your debit card for an hour or two.
And just remember next time you’re in line next to some slowpoke at an ATM that there’s a better than decent chance he’s typing in 6969, giggling softly to himself as he awaits his next withdraw. [Time via Digg]
