In the film Ready Player One, we catch a glimpse of Nolan Sorrento’s password written on a sticky note stuck to his chair. Later, we see Wade use this password to hack into Sorrento’s system.

The password is shown on-screen a few times, but I wasn’t able to catch it on my first watch.

What was Nolan Sorrento’s password?

    If it wasn't "god" then he wasn't being true to the '80s. Commented Apr 16, 2018 at 14:56

The password is:


That is a zero and not a capital O as is evidenced by it having a slash through it.

    In the Spanish dubbing of the movie the password is spelled as "Capital B, zero, five, five..."

    @JohnP: How do you know it wasn't Ø or ∅ ? Carefully when you cross mathematicians, or the Nordic. Commented Apr 16, 2018 at 15:53

    @ThePopMachine Nolan Sorrento had his password written on a sticky note. I suspect he's probably not using Nordic symbols in his passwords.

    It was definitely a 0, further when Wade gives it to Samantha verbally he calls out "Capital B, zero, five, five, man, sixty-nine" (source: myself - saw it twice)

    @ThePopMachine Sorrento needed a pop culture research team on call to hold a conversation. I assumed he had paid staff handle the hacking.
