President of Data Genetics, Nick Berry, conducted a study on 3.4 million leaked credit card pins to determine the most commonly and least commonly used passwords.

He writes:

“By combining the exposed password databases I’ve encountered, and filtering the results to just those rows that are exactly four digits long [0-9], the output is a database of all the four digit character combinations that people have used as their account passwords”.

He found the most common password in the world is astonishingly; 1234.

The top ten are as follows:

  1. 1234
  2. 1111
