The world expert on password analysis (no, really) looks at the “secret codes” posted by QAnon conspiracy trolls… and determined they’re very obviously just keyboard mashing. The methodology used to determine this is pretty interesting, too, and makes total sense when explained. You can even follow along yourself at home!

Also of interest: the “codes” were almost certainly generated by someone using a QWERTY keyboard, which probably means someone in the US (UK keyboards have slightly different symbol arrangements above the number keys, as do Russian keyboards that have joint Cyrillic/English layouts).
