    That was enlightening, thanks. Although having read the article, I am confirmed in the idea that my PIN is neither so common nor so uncommon as to be a risk, it doesn't fall into a 'common pattern' weakness and bucks pretty much all of the trends identified. Excellent.

    I just remembered the random pin the bank provided while opening my account.

    I am similar but mine was the 'PIN' attached to one of those ancient chargecards BT used to do so kids could make free phone calls home in an emergency - it's sad but I can still remember the lengthy number PLUS the prefix. Although it is nice to see that it doesn't match any of the aforementioned trends so in this case it was worth keeping. LOL back in the days before mobile phones. Now I feel old.
