How to Set-up a Pascode on the iPhone 5 (Guide)

 Our mobile phones store a lot of personal and financial information about us these days and setting up a passcode security system on your iPhone 5 device (or any previous model) is a good choice. We use so many banking applications, mobile payment processors, cloud storage account and social media apps that it would be crazy to risk having all that data compromised and have it fall in the wrong hands. This is essentially why one should set up a Passcode on their iOS device but how does one do that? Well, it is certainly quite a simple thing to do.

 Setting up a Passcode for the iPhone 5:
  1. Step 1: Tap on Settings and then head over to General.
  2. Step 2: Scroll down, you should find the Turn Passcode On option.
  3. Step 3: Select this options, a new windows will now appear.
  4. Step 4: Navigate the window keyboard to set up a 4 digit password.
  5. Step 5: Set up the Required Passcode Timer and choose something reasonable
    • Ideally, your phone should lock itself after 5 minuets of not being used.
    • This means that if you set the required passcode timer to 5 minuets, the phone will automatically lock itself after those 5 minuets have passed and nobody has used the phone for anything.

 Choose a Good Passcode

 You might be tempted to put something like "0000" thinking that it's genius and that nobody will ever think of putting that in if they got your phone, but trust us, this is the last passcode you want to have. The same goes for any numerical combination which follows a strict formula. For example, a strictly increasing array such as 0123, 1234 or 1357 (or decreasing for that matter) is also a big no when choosing your passcode.

 The passcode that you setup for you iPhone 5 should be a bit more personal and much more random and of course, difficult to crack for someone who might know you or a lot about you. Birthday days and anniversaries are a possibility, but you should always add something really random into the whole combination.
