    • Numbers must not be sequential (e.g., 1234, 4321).
    • Your PIN should not be your extension number.
    • PINs should not be any year (from 1900 - 2017).
    • PINs should not be a repeating ABAB pattern (e.g., 1010, 1212, 3131, etc.).
    • PINs must not be 2580, 0852, or 5683 (these are common combinations based on key placement or word association.)
