How to Make Your iPhone as Secure as Possible

Sure, your iPhone is practically glued to the inside of your pocket, if not your palm, but that doesn't mean you'll never get lose it or have it stolen. Just in case, here's how to get your iPhone in seriously un-hackable shape. 

CultofMactv just released a video providing easy ways to keep that precious iPhone safe and secure, including setting a six-digit password, changing your required passcode options, turning off any access on the locked screen, and other helpful tips. 

There's even a way to erase all data following 10 incorrect passcode entries, which will ensure important info doesn't get into the wrong hands. But if you're sleep-dialing or have kids that are continually hitting buttons on your phone, then please don't turn on this setting. You'll lose everything, and most likely, be pretty pissed. 

Check out the video and try not to get too paranoid. Unless you've already lost your iPhone. Then you're kinda screwed.
