DataGenetics has released a list of the 20 most-used PINS. There are 10,000 four-digit combinations that can be formed using the numbers 0-9, however many use the same ones.

DataGenetics says thieves can correctly guess more than 25 percent of PIN codes within 20 tries.

Researchers say the best PIN codes are ones without significance.
