Most Common iPhone Passcodes

Out of 204,508 recorded passcodes, the top ten most common were: [1234, 0000, 2580, 1111, 5555, 5683, 0852, 2222, 1212, 1998]

Naturally, 1234 is the most common passcode: mimicking the most common internet passwords.

To put this into perspective, these 10 codes represent 15% of all passcodes in use.

Most of the top passcodes follow typical formulas, such as four identical digits, moving in a line up/down the pad, repetition. 5683 is the passcode with the least obvious pattern, but it turns out that it is the number representation of LOVE (5683), once again mimicking a very common internet password: “iloveyou.”
