Oops! West reveals iPhone passcode
WASHINGTON — It’s time for Kanye West to do something about his iPhone passcode.
While visiting the Oval Office on Thursday, the rapper and music impresario was caught on camera logging onto his mobile device, a single digit pressed six times, 000000.
Cybersecurity folks did the virtual equivalent of a head slap.
“Sheesh,” tweeted Graham Cluley, a British security blogger.
Such a simple passcode is the equivalent of typing in “password1234,” which would never stump a hacker. Critics had a field day.
“Kanye with the expert 000000 passcode,” tweeted Kenny Ducey, a senior editor for social media at Sportsnet New York.
“Hello hackers, do your thang!” tweeted @twistedfables.
“He’ll be changing it to ‘111111’ this evening,” posted another, @FineHijinx.
A quick look at Twitter found posts in Turkish, Russian, German and Spanish about the passcode faux pas.
