The vast majority of BlackBerry 10 users prefer to use a password to lock down their device

A short while back we asked the CrackBerry nation "Do you lock your BlackBerry 10 smartphone using a password". Although I don't use a password myself I wasn't at all surprised by the results - which saw 70% of BlackBerry 10 users voting that they did indeed use one. 

Now, I'm not sure how these results compare to other operating systems, but at a guess I would say that they aren't too dissimilar. Where we may have a slight lead on the likes of iOS, Android and Windows Phone is that a percentage of BlackBerry customers will be enterprise users and if that information got into the wrong hands there could be hell to pay. 

It's been a while since we asked if you were using the traditional password option or whether you had switched to Picture Password now that 10.2.1 has rolled out. Sound off in the comments with your choice.

Pic password is cool but very hard to get when on the move... wish the 4 digit simple password didn't require to click on Enter after the code (eg apple accepts password as soon as you enter the 4th number)... dunno why this 5th click annoys the hell out of me...

Posted via CB10

jonty12

Because the BlackBerry system is more secure... it can be more than four numbers. Therefore it can't just finish at four because that gives away how many numbers are in the password. (e.g. My password isn't four characters).

I hear ya - I came from iPhone 4S, and having to press enter has caught me a few times out of habit...

wolf_clan

For me......
Picture password is not great, simply novel and cool to use.........for the first little while. Then I realized i was faster with simple password instead of having to locate my number and fumble for it to get to the right place on the pic.

~edit~ ......just wish I didn't have to hit "enter" after adding my 4 digit code

You have a point, yeah, sometimes lining up the number can be tricky.

Picture password is great! Way more efficient than a regular password AND you can do right in plain sight and not worry about your password being seen and therefore compromised. They can see it and not have a clue what they are looking for. BTW you don't have to drag the number your finger is on to the spot you chose, just the same number from anywhere on the grid to that spot.

No doubt that picture password is more secure but I take issue with the suggestion that it's more efficient.
I know you don't have to put your finger on your number but you still have to locate your number. I'm consistently faster with simple password because I don't have to "look" anywhere new. Muscle memory allows a four digit pass code to be consistently faster than picture password

Yeah, I prefer the picture password because of security. I've had people watch me unlock my phone and then handed it over to them and challenged them to unlock it. Even after I explained how picture password worked and repeated the process they still couldn't do it.

Then I watched a friend unlock their iPhone twice and showed I already knew their password.

This is why I use picture password; it maybe a bit slower but you never have to worry about anyone seeing what you entered.

+1 on the "Enter" part.

Posted via CB10

Prem WatsApp

On the Q10, the enter key is actually on the way to the rest position of your thumb, down the lower right corner (if you're right handed), so I has become second nature and a "muscle memory" action to press it automatically...

Why worried? It changed back to conventional password if you can't get it right too many times.

Posted via CB10

Thunderbuck

You can't actually lock yourself out of your phone with Picture Password. After 5 failed attempts it prompts you for whatever numeric/text password you've set.

SalMan50

Yup, you guys are right. I think it's about 10 tries before it goes back to numerical input

The point is the amount of times I get it right form the first try. When I used it, I think I averaged 3 times before I successfully unlocked it. I've hardly ever/never did it 10 times. But that's the problem, the time it took for that versus me entering my code, the latter was quicker, hence I decided on that instead

... My fingers + hand/eye coordination = revert back to the numerical bro lol

Posted via CB10

HaberNik

At 5 failed attempts, you must key in "BlackBerry" and then enter your actual password.

I had a hard time with it as well, at first, and sometimes find the the screen at the enter "BlackBerry" screen thanks to being in my pocket or the hands of my little ones.

Picture password for me! It's quick easy and I can do it in front of anyone and they are clueless...

Posted using the best phone ever, the Z30!

qiaha

i would like an option to set a higher autolock timer, or disable it entirely...

on my BB7 i used the BES Policy to set it to 8 hours...but my Q10, like my playbook allows me only up to an hour...this is really annoying...

i have some cases, where i want to lock my phone, but not always, and usually not after an hour...but the only way that it would work right now this way, would be to set the password only in these cases....

i hope they eventually make the timer longer, or give us the option to disable timed lock...but since the playbook has this since i can remember i somehow have no hope that this changes anytime soon...

HaberNik

Allowing your phone to stay unlocked for that long is a major security risk.

Tapped and flicked from my BlackBerry Z30!

qiaha

not always...if i'm at home or at other "secure places", it doesn't need to be locked...
thats my point...

i need eighter a simpler way to disable the password, i.e. not disable entirely and then create new...or a longer autolock timer...

but at home its quite unnerving that i need to unlock my phone if i'm over the 1 hour....

a security risk? i don't think so...i'm using a torch since the first day with the 8hour autolock policy, and got no problems with security...

and its the user, who has to decide, if he wants a long or a short time without password...but 1 hour as max choice is too short...at least for me :)

Traditional character password. Annoying on a touchscreen phone though.

I experimented with picture password but eventually dumped it for lack of security. It was great for speed, ease of use and effectiveness in preventing over-the-shoulder observation of the password/PIN/swipe pattern. However, it was a little prone to an accidental lucky unlock because sometimes the correct number landed very close to the unlock spot, so the user just needed to bump the screen a little to unlock. If that flaw gets ironed out, I can see picture password being more useful. It could be used to secure the personal side on a device with Balance, with the Work side requiring an additional character password.

Excellent idea.

Picture password! Great feature, most unique. :)

I still don't use a password. Tried picture password but didn't work great for me.

I love the concept of picture password but to be a top notch daily driver in the password category I would like to see BlackBerry make a slight adjustment wherein as you swipe to unlock your phone instead of the black screen, the long pause, then the appearance of pic password it simply reveals the picture password underneath as you swipe. Then once you've completed the swipe you are already looking at the picture password screen ready to go without the lag and wait time. As it is now it is so much faster to use the simple password or standard alphanumeric password.

I found picture password cool, but a bit too fussy. It always took me several tries to get it right. Always worry about accidentally locking myself out of my device!

Yeah I use Picture Password. True a little slower than alphanumeric but way more cool. To all my BlackBerry friends who mess with their phones while driving. DON'T. $300.00 fine and 3 demerit points in Ontario Canada. Ouch! Besides it would be terrible to meet you on the road. Try the old fashioned radio.

I used picture password for a while, but it is easier to use the 4 digit one, especially if you are in a hurry or walking. Like others, I agree it would be nice if hitting the enter wasn't a necessity.

Picture password. Have trouble putting the number in the right place, but hey, me and touchscreens are an uneasy truce at best. ;-)

Picture password for me. I liked the swiping feature on my old Galaxy S2, but think I prefer picture password to that.

Picture password.one of the best BlackBerry 10 features. I actually had an employee swap from an Android phone to a Z10 after he saw me swiping the pic to unlock. He went nuts -then I got to show him say it, and 10 email accounts on one device And on an on.he tinkered with my phone for an hour and loved it.his Z 10 comes in tomorrow.hes on AT&T. My boss is next...

BlackBerry by choice, blackberry for life!

I like the design of picture password. But to me, it seems the picture is a little off on its aspect ratio. Using Q5.

berrydisappointed

I am using simple pass.. picture pass is cool.. but, I always put my phone inside my pocket, the problem is.. while walking.. it accidentaly wakens up my phone due to sensitive touch screen.. and when I checked my phone it already had 5 incorrect input pass..some said.. use a holster or case that covers up the screen.. well.. im not comfortable with that, and other said.. disable the "swipe to wake" uhm.. I always use my physical lock key to turn off the display screen.. its like a habit.. but.. to wake my phone using it..nah.. I dont think so.. thats too much.. ill ruin my physical key for sure..

Picture password still isn't good enough for me, the way the grid moves it feels too "heavy", I can't just move the number I want to where I want it quickly and accurately!

Drag another number or somewhere away from your password so you will have a perfect view of your password being dragged into its correct spot.

Yep. Same here. Even though it's a pain in the ass to remembered all the passwords I have, yes indeed I prefer having one as supposed to a number...

Picture password its a nice idea, but horribly implemented.

Sometimes the picture password is so annoying. You have to put the number in the exact spot you placed it. Why can't it just be like a centimeter off to unlock your bb?

Posted via CB10

Thirdie Palma

To make it easier and not annoying, you need to drag another number far from your password so you will have a very good view of your password being dragged into the correct spot. Before, I thought it was annoying to when I dragged my exact password because I couldn't always see if it fitted well since it's entirely covered by my thumb or finger.
