Protect your iPhone by Setting Up a Stronger and Complex Passcode

Protect your iPhone by Setting Up a Stronger and Complex Passcode

Is your iPhone unlocked by your four-digit passcode? The truth is, it’s not safe enough. It’s actually very easy to unlock your iPhone, by guessing the numbers, simply seeing how your finger moves on the screen. It’s not that difficult to do. Actually, some of my friends found out my password by that way and saw my embarrassing pictures. That’s when I realized that four-digit number password isn’t secure enough to protect my iPhone.

Your iPhone knows about yourself much more than you do. And we all have the information and images that don’t want to be seen by our family, our friends or anyone else. Your important credit card information, your important password for your social media accounts and more. It’s very important to protect your iPhone with a stronger and complex passcode, unless you don’t have anything to hide.

Setting a stronger and complex passcode is very easy on iOS devices. So, let’s do it.

Step 1: Go to Settings first and tap Touch ID & Passcode. IMG_6772

Step 2: Turn off Simple Passcode to activate a complex passcode.

*Tips* 

For an easy strong password, is to combine some special characters by holding an alphabet key. Even “A” itself has eight other special characters. If you want to make it more complex, use a combination of uppercase and lowercase characters, numbers, and special characters.

Also, it’s important to avoid using personal information such as your birthday, phone number and etc.

By setting a strong and complex password, you don’t need to worry about your phone being unlocked by someone else anymore. Make sure you will not forget your password itself of course, otherwise things will be really complicated.
