    According to data collected from roughly 3.4 million online accounts, more then 25% came from 20 different pin numbers. With 10% being the pin number 1234 :y:

    I think that the four random common words would work great for websites,but it probably would never be used for debit cards. Since it would cost so much more money just replacing all the keypads to include 27 letters.
