Use a longer alphanumeric passcode on the iPhone
Authored by: mcmikemn on Sep 02, '08 08:08:43AM

Does this longer alphanumeric iPhone passcode replace the 4-digit numeric passcode that is the default security measure on the iPhone?

It replaces the 4 digit passcode. Here is a picture taken with my iSight camera:

This DOESN'T FIX the much reported passcode vulnerability. If double clicking your home button brings up your favorites, you will still be vulnerable. Change that functionality to ipod or home in settings for a temporary fix.

That's not what I was asking, but it's good information to know. Thanks.
