According to the research done by iOS developer Daniel Amitay, the top 10 most common iPhone passcodes used by iPhone users were:

1)      1234

2)      0000

3)      2580

4)      1111

5)      5555

6)      5683

7)      0852

8)      2222

9)      1212

10)   1998

It was an interesting research where the developer added a feature into his iPhone application – Big Brother Camera Security to trace anonymously 4 digit passcodes to unlock the app. Since the iPhone passcode requires 4 digits as well, he assumed that above passcodes were the most common passcodes for iPhone users. Whether the statistic truth or not, iPhone users should avoid to use all these common passcodes to protect personal information and privacy.
