Quick question, how many times would it take to crack the typical 4 digit PIN number?
Did you guess 9999? Believe it or not, there are less than 565 VERY common PIN numbers.
Why are there less than 565 popular PIN numbers?
A lot of people pick a birthday. That's 365 possible combinations, 12 possible combinations for the first two digits 01-12, and 31 possible combinations for the second 2 digits. Even worse, some use the year of their birth.
What are the other 200?
A lot of people who don't use dates, use repeating 2 digit numbers, like their birth day, such as 0505, or year such as 7575.
The final 100 are years. Since there aren't many people over 100, that's only another 100 possible choices.
