Oops! West re­veals iPhone pass­code

Lodi News-Sentinel - - NATION - By Tim John­son

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.
