Phone Privacy


Think your phone's pass code is uncrackable; think again.

Turns out your phone's pass code might not be doing that much to protect you. Most codes are easy to crack because people make them easy to remember. Things like 1-2-3-4, an address or a birthday.

On the other hand some people don’t' use a pass code at all because they don't like the extra step when they want to quickly use their phone. But that doesn't mean you need to leave your information unprotected for the entire world to see.

So in order to find another option to keep your secrets safe a tech writer with the Associated Press is taking a closer look at some of the other options available.

Apples can recognize all five fingers unless they're wet or greasy; Samsung only recognizes three. Now other companies are jumping on board.
