This number was closely followed by 1111, 0000 and 7777 as other most popular numbers.
The study found that people generally use important dates or information asa guide when picking their PIN number. The most popular of these is a pet’s birthday or the date of our wedding anniversary.
Research suggests that many people simply opt for the most memorable code they can think of.
Using the digits zero to nine there are a total of around 10,000 possible ways to form a four-digit PIN code.
But using data from security breaches and previously released or exposed password tables, the bloggers found that 11% of the 3.4 million passwords they looked at were 1234 – a proportion they described as “staggering” and betraying a “lack of imagination.”
