i-Phone Users are in Risk

Millions of iPhone users are at risk of having their devices hacked as they are picking up password combinations that are highly predictable, a new study has revealed. According to a research conducted by iPhone developer Daniel Amitay, 10,000 possible passwords are available for the device and15 percent of users choose one of ten four-digit combinations that are highly predictable.
Amitay conducted the experiment by tracking the passwords entered by users of the Big Brother Camera Security application he developed, the Daily Mail reports. He collected 204,508 passwords in the process, making the assessment using the logic that the password set-up to the application and the iPhone lock screen are nearly identical. “Because Big Brother's passcode setup screen and lock screen are nearly identical to those of the actual iPhone passcode lock, I figured that the collected information would closely correlate with actual iPhone passcodes,” Amitay said.
His findings show roughly ten percent of iPhone users use 1234 or 0000.
Amitay determined the high frequency of 199* could represent the 1990s, indicating a birth year or the year of graduating college. His findings showed the least used numbers are seven and six.
