Stop Using 6-Digit iPhone Passcodes - Motherboard

I've always used a 6-digit PIN (once that option came out), but this article made me consider that with TouchID I now don't need to use my PIN nearly as much, and the added security of an alphanumeric passcode is worth the trouble. I've switched all my devices to use a strong password now. 🔐

Cops all over the United States are racing to buy a new and relatively cheap technology called GrayKey to unlock iPhones.

GrayKey, the tool law enforcement's been buying to unlock iPhones, appears to work by brute forcing passcodes, another reason to use a strong alphanumeric code

It’s time to use longer, harder to crack alphanumeric passphrases.
