Hello Mi Fans,
When you’re first setting up your phone, you may have the choice of unlocking it via fingerprint or a PIN code. Prints are unique to you, and it’s impossible for a hacker to guess what your fingers look like, but does that make fingerprints more secure than PIN codes?
For the vast majority of people, a fingerprint will be the more secure way to go. Even with the 10-attempt erasure feature turned on, it’s possible—however unlikely—that someone could guess your PIN.
Whether you choose a fingerprint or a PIN code (or even both) to protect your phone also depends on who you want to keep out of it. If you don’t want a random stranger picking your phone up off of the table at a coffee shop and accessing it, either will work just fine, and a fingerprint might work better. Either method should keep prying eyes out while you go through the ways to find your lost or stolen phone.
Fingerprints and PIN codes have their advantages and disadvantages. While prints are the more secure method for your phone, that doesn’t mean PIN codes are the smartphone equivalent to leaving the front door unlocked. Both are solid choices, and it comes down to what you want from your phone to decide which is best for you.
