WHILE our parents wouldn't dream of admitting they have a favourite child, we all know there is one.
And now one mum has revealed the sure-fire way to tell who out of your siblings is the favourite thanks to one small detail.
Taking to TikTok, Alex Griswold and his girlfriend, know as the 'internet parents'revealed the secret code that undoubtedly proves who is the favourite – and it's all to do with their computer passwords.
In the video, he explained: "Okay, so the password child is like when you're trying to watch your parents Netflix, but it's logged out.
"So then you ask what's the password and then they say your name or one of your siblings names, and then whose ever name that is is the favourite child."
People were left stunned by the revelation and it soon went viral with over one million views and over 170k likes.
