Personal Identification Number number is just wrong ;)

Thanks for opening this issue: I know it's "wrong", but it is common to say "PIN Number", at least in my latitudes.
What do you think about it? Should I change it?

I'm not a native English speaker but on the internet circles I play it's not seen very well.

Neither am I, but I know that some acronyms are used recursively (like ATM Machine, PIN Number, NFC Communication, ...)
I'll keep this open, hopefully a third person may give an advice on this: it is a nice language "bug" btw 😄

I'd change it to either "PIN code" or just "PIN". Technically speaking, "code" is redundant too (personal identification number code), but it's commonly used (moreso than "PIN number" in my experience) and, to me, sounds better.

PIN code sounds good! 👍
