An easy way to dramatically improve iPhone (or any phone) security

Al Sacco | Oct. 28, 2014
This past weekend, as I stood in line at a Whole Foods market in Portland, Maine, waiting to buy delicious Maine beer, I did something kind of sketchy. I'm not proud of it.

To disable the iPhone's "simple passcode" option and enter in a new password, tap your iPhones Settings icons, choose Touch ID and Passcode, and enter in your current passcode if you're using one. Next, turn the Simple Passcode option off, and then enter your new password, confirm it, and you're good to go.

It's also a good idea to keep an eye out for sketchy weirdoes with their hands full of beer bottles, peeking at your phone while you wait in line at the supermarket to pay for organic produce.
