    I am trying to get some metrics and I figured what better way than to reach out to the amazing diverse members of iMore.

    Here is the question:

    Do you have a passcode on your iPhone? If so is it longer than 6 characters.

    Post why or why not.

    Yep!
    And only 4.

    Because I had to put one in but I always use my fingerprint sensor.

    I thought you need a passcode as a back up for your fingerprint? So I just did it because I had to lol.

    Yes, I've used a 4 digit passcode for 5 years. But use Touch ID most of the time. I thought about going with 6 digits, but didn't. Works for me.

    Yup. 6 digits. But only because it is required for Touch ID. I'd imagine thats the majority. When I was selling cell phones everyone set up a passcode so they could take advantage of touch ID. It really did increase device security. Prior to that, a lot of customers I worked with found passcodes to be an inconvenience.

    Yes I do. 6 digits. It gives me a peace of mind just in case someone gets their hands on my iPhone. I always use the touch ID unless my password is needed.

    A passcode is required. But not a 6 digit one. I still use 4 digits.

    Hmm. I'm the odd man out -- I use 7 characters. Plus touch ID, of course.

    Touch ID and I do a 4 digit passcode.

    Touch ID and the 4 digit code. I kept with 4 digits when Apple upped the possibilities.

    I figured if 4 digits is sufficient to keep my bank card safe it's also the same for the contents of my iPhone

    Yes, I use a 6-digit passcode for security purposes. I don't want anyone accessing my iPhone without my permission, and I'm definitely not going to make it easy for them if I somehow lost it.
