a9to5Mac built a profile form Apple’s SDK which allows you to use alphanumeric passcode instead PIN. Here’s how to do that.
- With your iPhone open this link or just type this URL “http://9to5mac.com/9to5mac.mobileconfig” on Safari.
- You will be asked for a passcode with numbers and letters. Take note that you cannot put numbers in consecutive order, you can use MAC724 but not MAC123 nor MAC345.
- No more Step 3. That’s it you already set your alpha-numeric pass code.
In case you want to revert back and remove this feature you just need to go to “Settings/General/Profiles/9to5mac/ and click remove.
Now that the security is tighter using alpha-numeric passcode, you’re more prone to loosing or forgetting it. Just make sure to memorize the passcode, there’s no default passcode and 9t05mac is not responsible if you got yourself locked out of your iPhone and iPod Touch. You can try this method to bypass the passcode or just do a restore.
