One of the main features of smartphones today is security. With the introduction of new techniques in the realm of smartphone security, brands like Apple have started taking the security on their devices, to the next level. Today, iPhones come with fundamental security features, but there is also the added bonus of the Face ID technology, which gives your device, that edge over the rest.
Now, if you are using the Face ID or Touch ID features on the iPhone, you will see that at the time of setting the security options, Face Id and Touch ID require you to set an additional security protocol, in the form of a Pin or a Passcode. Now, it is a good idea to keep changing the passcode from time to time, to keep the security up to date. This is because, usually, we may have to divulge the passcode to our friends or colleagues, for a spur of the moment condition, and once they know the passcode, they can access your device at any time.
In order to change the passcode on the iPhone, you will first have to reset the security protocols and then set a new passcode. The process is very easy, and in this tutorial, we will talk you through the whole process.
Step 1. Open the ‘Settings‘ app on the iPhone.
Step 2. Scroll through the settings menu and tap on the ‘Face ID and Passcode‘ option.
Step 3. Enter your existing passcode, to enter the security settings of the iPhone.
Step 4. Scroll through the security settings and tap on the ‘Change Passcode‘ option.
Step 5. Once again, enter your existing passcode to gain entry into the passcode settings.
Step 6. Enter the new passcode for your iPhone.
You will be asked to re-enter the new passcode, and once you are done, the settings will be applied. Now every time you want to unlock your iPhone, you will have to use this new passcode. We recommend that you change your passcode at least once a month, to keep things fresh and difficult to crack.
