How to set a stronger passcode for your iPhone – and still remember it! [VIDEO]

Password wizard Per Thorsheim has made a great video that explains in very simple terms how to create a strong harder-to-crack passcode for your iPhone which is *still* easy to remember.


It is astonishing how many people don’t realise that you can choose to have a harder-to-crack passcode on your iPhone than the 4 digit default, but Per’s great video really explains well how to do it *and* how you can make sure that stronger password remains memorable.

Of course, the advice works equally well on any iOS device – so you can protect your iPads and iPhone Touches this way too.

Nice one Per!
