    So about a week and a half ago I got a message saying I need to change my iPhone 6 passcode within 60 minutes. I did so from a 4 to 8 digit passcode. No problems until a couple days ago when i plugged my iphone into my mac to charge and I got a message saying that there was an update available for my iphone, even though I checked and it's up to date. I checked "do not ask me again" last time but it still popped up this time, and I just got the change passcode within 60 minutes message again, which is why I'm concerned. Is this a bug or is there a problem, if there is how do I fix it?

    Are you using your iphone to log in to your works email or ActiveSync exchange server?
    Might be a requirement set by your network admin.

    Might have a problem as I have never heard or seen this message with a 60 minute deadline.

    Do you think it could be a virus or phishing? What do you think I should do?
    Thank you

    If it we me I would reset my iPhone like it was new and use an "older" backup to restore to see if that works. Also confirm that there is no profile set up.

    I Googled and you are not the only one that has got this message.

    People have come across this before. It's something that can really come from iOS itself, so not something from a virus or phishing or something like that.

    I agree. This was something that was happening to me while I was on the iOS 9 beta last year, so I don't think you should have anything to worry about.

    I would verify that a profile wasn't installed on your device without your knowledge. If my memory is correct it would be under Settings, then General, then Profile. If anything is there you should be able to remove it.

    Or maybe someone without you knowing is trying different combinations of password and he/she failed over and over again. This could be a security safeguard of iOS or something alike.

    Why would you be asked to change yours if someone else is trying to guess yours? The safeguards around failures related to that (which can really just be done on the device) are that the device becomes "disabled" for a period of time preventing someone from guessing more and more.
