Password: Odeon1234!

Hmmm… this looks a lot like my test account credentials, and if I’m right, it says “Odeon1234!” It’s really a very stupid password.

My guess is that this username/password combination was to be kept private and only used by Odeon’s internal technical staff, rather than shared with hundreds of thousands of moviegoers.
