I can't remember my phone's password! Ever since January of 2018 I have changed my phone's password every month to stay secure, however even I have trouble remembering my passwords. Luckily my background gives me a clue as to what it is. Some of these clues are easy to solve and some are difficult.

What is my phone's password this month?

Hint:

My passwords are usually pretty long (sometimes as long as 30 digits).

  • $\begingroup$ No, I'm not hacking anybody's phone. I (sadly enough) don't know anybody with cool puzzles on their phones! $\endgroup$

Based on @LeppyR64's answer and the new hint, could the password be

161803398874989484820458683437

This is

$\phi \times 10^{30}$, rounded (since the numbers after the decimal point would be 6.56 rounded to 7).

Is the password:

PHIe30

Notes:

Phi is the golden ratio, as symbolized with the symbol and the drawing. phi x 10^30 is phi e 30.

  • $\begingroup$ It's very, very close! You're on the right track, but I'll add a hint to my post that will help a bit. $\endgroup$
