    I've always found out that people more than likely use their birth year, which obviously due to the wide range of possible dates isn't on that list but still IMO comes under fairly stupid.

    I'm going to admit to not using a passcode, it honestly annoys me having to swipe, and then put a passcode in. I prefer to just swipe. Silly, I know.
