    Its crazy, I have two female coworkers, one has a 5s the other a 6. Neither one uses touch ID!! That was one of the straws pulling me in to get a iPhone. I rarely use the pincode; maybe 20% of the time. Touch ID is the ****, just saying

    I use Touch ID and 6 digit passcode. Prior to having a 6S+ and 5S I never locked any of my iPhone's because I just didn't want to be bother typing I. A code very 2 seconds I needed to access my phone. Now, I'd never go without it. Touch ID is a dream ! Although as a few of you mentioned, when my fingers are either too dried out or to moist from washing my hands it doesn't always register.

    Passcode and Touch ID. Wife has Touch ID but she always puts in the code.
    Can you use Touch ID without having a passcode? Didn't think you could? You can use Touch ID, but you still have to have a passcode too....

    I found a old Otterboxe Defender from my iPhone 5 days and put it on my SE. I forgot to notice that the OB covers the home button (touch ID) and tried to go without the touch ID.....that lasted about 20 minutes lol.

    I have found that in the short time I've had the SE, I rely heavily on touch ID and don't think I could go without it!?

    Touch ID is such an awesome feature and to be honest, this is the first time I've ever used it!

    Touch ID and 6 digit passcode. Passcode provides another convenient way in if for whatever reason Touch ID has a hard time. Its pretty much required for me. I work in IT.

    My wife initially was reticent to accept the idea of TouchID, coming from Samsung's phones. I literally forced her to try it for a week and now she can't go without it.

    Not sure your point? It's correct though, you need a code as backup to Touch ID.

    Simply that you can't use Touch ID without a pass code. Everyone that said they use Touch ID must of necessity also use/have a pass code. The original question was do you use a pass code?

    I don't use Touch ID either, only the passcode. I'm just fine with typing, and I have been using an iphone for a month and some days now.

    Who dose not use one. With all the information on your phone you should be using the strongest one possible.

    There are people like my mom who don't see the point, but I do agree. The idea of someone picking up my phone and going through my emails and social media makes me twitch.

    Prior to Touch ID I didn't. It was just another step to get into my phone and I wasn't patient enough for it, lol. But ever since Touch ID I have a passcode on my phone (because it's required). I enjoy the security and Touch ID makes it convenient.

    I use a passcode (and touchid). Since I get work emails, the group policies are such that I'm prompted for a passcode.

    My kids use passcodes as does my wife. In this day and age, I think we all agree its needed.

    I use TouchID and have both thumbs and right index registered. Only time I use a passcode is if I have restarted the device or if it is an iOS device that I haven't used for a few days.

    I don't have much to hide on my phone either, but the guys at work will mess with it (change wallpaper, snap unwanted pics, etc.) if I leave my phone at the desk unattended.

    The FBI recommends not using a passcode. It makes fishing expeditions less easy.

    I use a six-number passcode with devices that allow it. TouchID with everything possible.

    I'm forced to use one to receive work emails on my phone. However, I'd use one anyway even if not forced to. Touch ID has been a beautiful thing, IMHO.

    I have used a 4-digit p/c since the days of my iphone4s.

    Recently, I decided to upgrade my passcode. I was thinking 6-digit, but realized that I could use a complex alphanumeric one.

    So I decided to use my AppleID p/w as my passcode because with TouchID, the length and complexity of the p/c is trivial given how rarely one has to actually enter it.

    I also had my 83 year old mom do this as it eliminates a code and allows her to keep her AppleID p/w fresh in her mind. (All the rest of her p/ws are, unique, complex, and managed via her iCloud Keychain.)

    Ok, I never said anything about using Touch ID without a passcode so I was confused what you meant when quoting my post.

    I use both - primarily Touch ID (thereby using a passcode as well) and the passcode when necessary. My wife, who has both, still punches in the passcode rather than use the Touch ID she has set up. Old habits I guess.

    yep. I'm switching my iPhone completely off, once in a week, and the passcode is needed after that.
