How secure is a 10 digit passcode with numbers ranging from 1-10?

I don’t think anyone can answer this question.


It will depend on whether you have it on a post-it note stuck to your monitor so everyone can see it, or if it’s in your head and one would have to use duress to get it, or if you choose your passcode to follow a certain pattern, which is easy to deduce.

It is much easier to tell you the worst probability of finding such a passcode if someone uses random guesses - that’s obviously 1 in 10 to the power of 10.
