Default Can someone guess your PIN?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello. I received a bbm invitation via a PIN message (I figure that because it displayed his PIN in the body of the invite). He said he entered my PIN by accident- like a typo when he was meaning to invite someone else. Is this possible?

A typo is possible. If you dont know the person then just ignore the message and do not reply unless you intend to add them or want them to add you.

I think it's a simple enough mistake to make. A few times I've been adding a friend and they haven't gotten my invite, and when I checked I hadn't added the pin in correctly. If you're concerned just ignore, your friends will just re-add when you speak to them!!

I once got a BBM invite from someone I thought was my cousin. Turns out it was some little girl in Indonesia, and my cousin had traded in her BB years before.

So yes, accidents can happen.
