Does "wipe pattern recognition" count as having a password?

You could always just tell her your passcode. Mr. NA and I know each otherís codes, but we still have them to avoid having our lives made complicated by a lost or stolen phone (and to avoid having our kids find our nudey pics, obvs).

Wow, frankly stunned at people that don't. I'm not a particularly tech-forward early adopter, and the amount of access that's available on my phone is mind-boggling. Bank, IRA, all kinds of financial stuff, as well as emails that have tons of confidential information that I could be liable for, both personal and professional. All kinds of social networks, internet history, and - holy crap, just realized this now - my AO ID and PW.
