The question kind of speaks for itself, I mean I know a lot of people and they have mixed opinions on this. Do you guys like putting passcodes on your phones? I certainly do, I mean you never know when a nosy friend or family member might just search through your phone. It's comforting having that extra layer of security. What do you guys think? Most people I know do, but some don't, which is odd to me.

I passcoe is a must, just like passwords for computers and even encryption.

Honestly, I hate to have a passcode on my phone simply because it's annoying to have to enter a passcode whenever you want to use your phone. Though you're right about the security and privacy of things. I have a passcode on there to keep people out of my phone, but i'd love to keep my passcode free if I can.

I have my iPhone set to require it after an hour of inactivity. Otherwise I, like above people, got annoyed of typing it every time I needed to do something. I like having it, just not typing it.

I don't have a passcode on my phone. To cumbersome for me really. And If I lose my phone, I can remote wipe it.

I have it on even though I do find it slightly annoying but I find it more annoying when other people start to look through my phone not because I have anything embarrassing but it automatically logs into almost every online account I have so it's kinda about security. If there was photo recognition or a finger print scanner i'd use it.

I'm thinking of keeping my phone unlocked, because I like the way it looks with the slide, instead of putting a PIN and making it look all smushed up on the lockscreen.
