[Lounge] [Mi Quick Poll #10] How Often Do You Change Your Lock Screen Password?

Hello Mi Fans,

With time, the amount of data kept in phones and tablets has increased so much that their protection has become a priority. No device as complex as a smartphone or tablet is ever completely secure, but device manufactures and developers are still doing their best to keep your data safe. The first line of defence is your lockscreen, typically protected by a PIN code or password. It's surely a good practice to have a password, PIN number, or fingerprint check protecting your phone.


Over the years there have been various options for smartphone security, from lock patterns to pictures to facial recognition. The humble four-digit PIN code is one of the most popular choice. Throw in everything from online shopping apps to relationships that you might want to keep quiet about  and it soon becomes apparent how important lock screen security really is.

There is some merit to changing your passwords regularly, and keeping your information secure is definitely a priority. It may seem like a simple thing, but changing your password is a fact of life. Changing your password regularly may not be the best course of action, but changing it to something strong and hard to crack or guess is.


At the end, it’s up to you to make your device’s security your personal goal. The chances or your devices being “hacked” or broken or stolen into depends entirely on how careful you are with it, and the complexity of the security you’ve put into place. After all much of our life is contained within a very small item that can easily be lost or stolen.

i don't keep any sensitive data on my phone - and my policy is that if it gets stolen then so what? - it gives me an excuse to buy a newer better phone and nothing on it is really sensitive ..... in terms of possibly only banking details being accessible the account that is linked in my phone very rarely has more than 30 or 40 bucks - so if a thief accesses it he will not get rich quickly LOL

so i don't bother to change and i have a very easy password to remember and i rely more ont he fingerprint scanner to open the phone for me
