The top 10 passcodes you should never use on your iPhone
Are you one of the many people who is using a dangerously easy-to-guess passcode on your iPhone?
Maybe you should do something about it - sooner rather than later.
The warning comes after new research suggested that 15% of all iPhone owners use one of just ten passwords on their lock screen:
Apple iPhone app developer Daniel Amitay published the interesting research, looking at the four digit passcodes that users choose to secure their systems with.
Fortunately, he didn't snoop on the actual passcodes used by iPhone
users to lock their devices - but instead anonymously collected the
codes chosen by users to secure the "Big Brother Camera Security" app he
develops. In all, Amitay collected over 204,000 passcodes.
Amitay postulated that as Big Brother's password setup and lock
screen are nearly identical to the actual iPhone lock screen, the
likelihood is that the passcodes used would most likely correlate with
the codes used to lock iPhones.
