    I have a iPhone 5 and updated my software to 9.0.2... I never ever use iCloud and didn't use a passcode to unlock my iPhone ...That was my choice...But now if I don't use a passcode all of my
    Passwords are there for anyone to see them... Before I updated to 9.0.2 I didn't have this issue so
    How can I just have to use a passcode for my passwords but not for unlock my iphone5... This is
    Very confusing...I would appreciate any help... It's a pain every time I want to check anything on
    My phone I have to unlock it...I can deal with unlocking it for passcode so ....But not to just check
    On things from my iPhone...Maybe I did something wrong when I downloaded the software ?
    Thanks For Any Help

    What passwords are you talking about that are now visible?

    he's talking about safari passwords.

    i don't understand why someone would not want to keep their phone unlocked and not have a passcode.

    if you don't like your passwords being visible in safari, then use a passcode, genius

    without a passcode your usb port is wide open

    use a passcode and upgrade to a 5s, and use your fingerprint
    without iCloud you might as well put up a sign saying please steal my iPhone

    Another precaution is do not leave you phone laying around to be stolen. My phine never leaves my person so theft is pretty hard to accomplish. So many stories about people who left their phine somewhere and came back and it was gone . . . . Can you imagine that!

    I don't understand the point of stealing an iPhone. Isn't Find my iPhone/activation lock enabled by default, when signing into iCloud? I would venture to guess the vast majority of iPhones are locked down and as good to a thief as a paper weight.

    They can still be sold for parts and there's plenty of unsuspecting buyers who aren't aware of activation lock.

    Sometimes thieves are not too smart.
