    Password: Numbers or Characters

    If you've installed the latest iOS for iPhone\iPad, you'll notice that there is now an option to use 'simple' password or not.

    Simple: you'd use a pin code
    Non-simple: you'd use characters.

    Which one do you prefer?

    The only people that could ever use my devices have their own. I would never let anyone just pick them up so I don't have a need for the security. I also don't keep anything on them that would be a problem if they were stolen.

    My iPad is in my bedroom all the time. I'm the only one using it. I don't see the need for one.

    Password along with the Android Lock XT. Maximum security.

    I quickly switched to a complex password in l33t.

    Yep. I may take it to the living room once in a while but most of the time it stays in the bedroom.

    PIN. I have MobileMe with the FindMyPhone, etc., and the self destruct after 10 incorrect PIN tries option enabled. That's good enough for me at this time. No one trusts me with national security secrets anyway.

    I just use the simple passcode, although i did use the alpha-numeric for a while, but it was too much of a pain to enter every 5 mins I wanted in my iPhone lol

    I use PIN but I only use it when I travel. Other then that I use no security since I am the only one that touches my iPhone.

    I'm the only one that touches mine, but with all the numbers I have I can't risk being stolen from my phone out of respect to them

    Hahaha- I was a non-user till I noted my son using a pin on his Android. I implemented a pin on my iPhone, and he called me a day later, having left his in a cab in NYC! Recovered the Android, no data breach. So I am happy to use a pin on mine, though no really sensitive data is stored, the hassle and worry is mitigated.

    I would really use the option when they have it so that the PIN is needed to get ito the phone even if you reload the firmware. Then 10 times wrong and boom the phone is a paperweight, no chance of getting the phone back.

    I have no need for a password. I barely let my phone out of my sight when I'm out in public. And even if it got lost or stolen, there is no data that someone could get into that only myself or my wife has the password in that specific app for it. And with free Find my iPhone, I wont have to worry much if I lose it. I can recover it or wipe it, if I dont think I will get it back.
