One In Nine People Use ’1234′ as Their ATM PIN?

I can’t believe banks even LET people pick this as their ATM PIN.  According to a new report by a company called Data Genetics, one out of NINE people use “1234″ as their ATM PIN.  ONE OUT OF NINE.

Data Genetics analyzed 3.4 million ATM PINs that have been leaked by hackers over the past few years.  And 10.7% of them were “1234.”

The rest of the top 10 most common PIN numbers are just as bad:  1111, 0000, 1212, 7777, 1004, 2000, 4444, 2222, and, of course, 6969.

6969 came up more than 5% of the time, meaning a solid one in every 20 people couldn’t resist going perverted with their PIN.

On the other end of the list, the LEAST common PIN is . . . 8068.  Only 25 of the 3.4 million PINs released were 8068.  That’s 0.00074%.  Of course, you probably SHOULDN’T make that your PIN now, in case hackers read this analysis too.
