    So, I have some friends that think it is funny to mash in number combinations on my passcode screen and lock my phone for minutes and even hours without me knowing. Is there a way I can lock my iPhone without them locking it up for hours? ANY ideas of apps for security would be awesome. Thanks!

    If you're asking for a way to make your phone distinguish from legitimate incorrect passwords and a denial of service attack, there is none.

    Work "buddy" did this to me while I was in a conference all day. Came back to my phone being wiped. (corporate policy to enable wipe after 10 tries).

    Unfortunately I don't think there's a good way to prevent the lock timers from activating.

    Two options:

    Remove the pass code.

    Or

    Don't leave your phone lying around.

    Kick your friends in the nuts/vag and see how funny they think that is..... then tell them to keep their ****** hands off your phone.

    Don't remove the passcode. You'll find your phone one day with a passcode on it that they placed that you don't know.
