    When out and about or at work, I always use a passcode. When I am at home, I normally don't just for convenience.

    Someone else already said it, so I will repeat. I have every one of my devices passcode locked. Even my iMac which is obviously stationary. I prefer the extra security incase it's needed. To me it's like not locking your car doors when you leave your car. Not really needed where I live, but always a good idea.

    Before TouchID I never used one in my life. Now I have one on the iPhone and iPad because iCloud Keychain requires it. Hoping the next iPad has TouchID.

    Agreed.

    Never used a passcode. And since TouchID was announced, I guess Apple influenced everyone to use it.

    Apple preaches about Security and I guess they want their users to be more aware of protecting their own iDevices.

    I typically didn't, until TouchID with the 5s.

    I would put on a pass code when I was around people I didn't want to access it, but that was rather rare.

    I think it's a complete waste of time. If you steal my phone, I'll track you down with find my iPhone, and break both your hands with a nail clipper!

    I have an iPhone 5C and I do not passcode lock. I am 26 and the only one who ever touches the phone, besides my dash or my pocket..or my night table.

    However, I would like to now have the S with the touchID, but even so, I do not wish to have a passcode--just a fingerprint.

    The only thing my phone is missing is touchID, but of course no one at apple will relic in the beauty that is the plastic backing. They'll just kill it right off. It is definitely better in the hand (naked aka the way it's sold) than the 4 or 5S.

    Just saying.

    Can't use the fingerprint option without a pass code.

    But then you don't use the non-fingerprint option except when rebooting.

    Both my iPad and 5S have a pass code. Even when I had the 5, it had a pass code. I'm OCD about security on my devices..lol😁

    Touch ID and complex password. Control center and notifications disabled on lock screen. Require password immediate plus others.

    All my phones are password locked

    But, and this is where the ingenuity comes in, they are never password locked at home due to a jailbreak tweak for my iPhone and a different app for my Android phones that will disable the password lock every time I am within a radius of a wifi signal I have decided to trust, in my case, it is my home wifi. Whenever I am out of the house, the screen lock auto-enables and when i'm home, the screen lock auto-disables.

    The app for my iPad and iPhone is called CleverPin and it is available on Cydia and is the main reason I jailbreak in the first place.

    I never had any of my previous iPhones pass code locked because I've never lost an iPhone or had people looking through my phone. The only reason I lock it now is cuz I have to for Touch ID but I don't mind.

    Me. Had one stolen before there was any sort of real protection besides that and I won't leave it accessible in any way. My husband and I know each other's codes so that if were in an emergency we can get in, and I made him register a finger despite his protest. After my moms ambulance ride and seeing a friend lose her husband very young last year, I'm very concerned that we both have access and info available in the event of something like that.

    Never used the passcode until 7.x.x, where the setup rather encouraged it. "Meh", I thought. "Why not?"

    To limit the frustration, I have extended the awake time on the screen somewhat. But hey, am I really worried about the 2 seconds 'lost' of my life by reentering the code? And it cuts back on the likelihood of pocket dialing.
    I guess there's the whole 'security' issue, too, but any would-be thief would be pretty disappointed at what he found on my device - before I shut it down via 'Find My iPhone'.

    If you use ANY sort of financial app on this thing, or have your email on it, that's just asking for hell in your life if you don't.

    Yeah, you should definitely have a lock on your phone if you have email, finances, or personal data on your device

    Mine is password protected as part of out IT policy, but even if it wasn't on the corporate exchange I'd still have a password on it.
