iPhone Developer Daniel A. has revealed the most common iphone passwords used by his customers who purchased his Big Brother Camera Security app. Don’t go all crazy worrying about security risks, all the data was collected anonymously.
Formulaic passwords are never a good idea, yet 15% of all passcode sets were represented by only 10 different passcodes (out of a possible 10,000). The implication? A thief (or just a prankster) could safely try 10 different passcodes on your iPhone without initiating the data wipe. With a 15% success rate, about 1 in 7 iPhones would easily unlock–even more if the intruder knows the users’ years of birth, relationship status, etc.
We suggest you don’t use these passwords and if your honestly going to use “1234″ or better yet the first 5 passcode locks listed on the graph on your device give your self a hard face palm.
Now if your currently using one of these passwords go into settings.app->general->passcode lock and change your obvious password. Wait we’re not done, now give yourself a slap in the face for not protecting your contacts, personal pics, etc…
