I'm Tellin' You, Lock It Down

Hello Everyone,

As I have posted, I support several people on both iOS and OSX as both
clients and friends.

One of my friends, a fellow VoiceOver user, until now, has fervently refused
to setup either a Touch-ID or PIN on her iPhone 6, despite my suggestions to
the contrary. She said she thought it was too much trouble.

Today, she called me and told me that she, upon returning from a short
vacation with her family, accidentally left her phone in her sister's house,
approximately 800 miles away.

While her sister will FedEx the phone back to her, my friend was afraid that
her sister would and, according to her, most likely did, snoop on her phone.


She truly laments not having taken the time to setup her Touch-ID and
password.

I'm tellin' you, lock it down before it's too late (smile).

Thank you for sharing. I only have a 4s so can only use a passcode.
Better than nothing though.

I'm scared, in case I can't get back in the first time I reboot ... so
confess I'm one of those who hasn't done it - yet!

I would probably put in a number code if I were to dare to do it. Is it the
number type keypad that comes up, or are the numbers across in one line?
I'm thinking you have to be able to do these without hearing what you've
written, but could you confirm this please.

Hi,

VO talks while you enter your code. The keypad that you get is a phone
type one where you have numbers in rows of 3.

Cheers,
Ben.

Two years ago, I decided to start using a passcode, and also the setting that erases the iPod if there are more than ten attempts to enter the passcode. About a month after I set it up, I was sitting reading something, and noticed my Braille display suddenly lost access to the text. I had put the iPod next to my display on the table, and one of the volunteers at the Blind Center I had gone to had simply literally lifted it. Before I could croak out a stunned "Hey!" it was long gone. I created a police report, but never saw it again. I had to buy another one. This time it doesn't leave my purse in public, unless it absolutely has to. I've also set up two-step verification and the same passcode settings.

Hello Teresa,

I am so sorry someone stole your property. That sounds absolutely horrible.

A couple of weeks ago, when carrying some groceries into the house, I left my iPhone 6 Plus in the front seat of a friend's car who was waiting for me to return to the car so we could continue running errands.

Upon entering the house, I realized that I had left my phone in the car. Prior to Touch-ID/Pass Code, this would have caused me great concern as, while not exactly a snoop, my friend might have let her curiosity get the better of her and, quote, glanced, quote, at my phone (smile).

When I returned to the car, she handed me the phone saying, "I did not try to look at it."

To which I responded, "Really? You mean you weren't tempted?"

To which she replied, "What's the point, you've got it on lock down." We both laughed at that.

In addition to VoiceOver, I use the display a great deal but, when in waiting rooms, standing in line, sitting in close proximity to others, say in the front seat of a car, I turn on the screen curtain. Using the Screen Curtain brings me great comfort, to put it mildly.

Say what you will about Apple but when they do it right, they do it better than anyone.

Mark

Since the pass code feature was instituted, I did not do this step because
if the phone talks people can hear me punch in my pass code if I am in a
public setting. Now, with touch ID, I have a pass code. I was dubious
about setting up touch ID because it would be just my luck with one wrong
move I would screw it up making my phone useless, but the process of setting
up a touch ID was so easy. With the touch ID and pass code I am very happy.

I have a question...If a passcode and/or touch ID is set on, when a phone call comes in, Does the passcode and/or touch ID have to be entered before the phone can be answered?

Unfortunately this doesn't work with the Fongo app. That's a Canadian
VOIP app that uses 3G LTE or WIFI to make VOIP calls. I have to
unlock, tap on the notification at the top, then tap once on "Answer".
Otherwise it's quite a good app if you're in an area with bad cell
reception but good WIFI and need an alternative.
No, to answer a call, all you have to do is a single finger double tap. Terry

If you can reliably dial a phone number on your iPhone then you can use the passcode feature.

Hi,

VO talks while you enter your code. The keypad that you get is a phone
type one where you have numbers in rows of 3.

Cheers,
Ben.

I'm scared, in case I can't get back in the first time I reboot ... so
confess I'm one of those who hasn't done it - yet!
I would probably put in a number code if I were to dare to do it. Is it the
number type keypad that comes up, or are the numbers across in one line?
I'm thinking you have to be able to do these without hearing what you've
written, but could you confirm this please.

Hello Everyone,
As I have posted, I support several people on both iOS and OSX as both
clients and friends.
One of my friends, a fellow VoiceOver user, until now, has fervently refused
to setup either a Touch-ID or PIN on her iPhone 6, despite my suggestions to
the contrary. She said she thought it was too much trouble.
Today, she called me and told me that she, upon returning from a short
vacation with her family, accidentally left her phone in her sister's house,
approximately 800 miles away.
While her sister will FedEx the phone back to her, my friend was afraid that
her sister would and, according to her, most likely did, snoop on her phone.
She truly laments not having taken the time to setup her Touch-ID and
password.
I'm tellin' you, lock it down before it's too late (smile).

For those that are hesitant to enter their passcodes in public areas,
you could also enter them with either Braille screen input or
handwriting input. I use handwriting a lot to enter my passcode and
mostly get the code right on the first try. At least with handwriting,
each number is not announced when I write it in. I have never used
Braille screen input, but it probably works the same way. I do wish I
knew of a gesture to erase the last thing entered with handwriting,
like you can do with braille input, but oh well. I've got several
chances to enter the passcode in correctly so it doesn't bother me.

I say be careful when in public using the handwriting feature. Some sighted people can tell what numbers/letters are being written by the motion of your finger/hand.

Hello Everyone,
As I have posted, I support several people on both iOS and OSX as both
clients and friends.
One of my friends, a fellow VoiceOver user, until now, has fervently refused
to setup either a Touch-ID or PIN on her iPhone 6, despite my suggestions to
the contrary. She said she thought it was too much trouble.
Today, she called me and told me that she, upon returning from a short
vacation with her family, accidentally left her phone in her sister's house,
approximately 800 miles away.
While her sister will FedEx the phone back to her, my friend was afraid that
her sister would and, according to her, most likely did, snoop on her phone.
She truly laments not having taken the time to setup her Touch-ID and
password.
I'm tellin' you, lock it down before it's too late (smile).

I think if anyone is worried about this then they should definitely be
careful. I find I'm quick enough with either the hand writing mode or
even just entering my passcode with the numeric keypad, that I doubt
anyone can pick up my passcode. Of course, if someone is hovering over
me often while I'm entering my passcode then I think I'd be suspicious.
Of course, someone would also have to get their hands on my iPhone even
if they were able to figure out my passcode.
Post by Donna
I say be careful when in public using the handwriting feature. Some sighted people can tell what numbers/letters are being written by the motion of your finger/hand.
Donna
Post by Wayne Merritt
For those that are hesitant to enter their passcodes in public areas,
you could also enter them with either Braille screen input or
handwriting input. I use handwriting a lot to enter my passcode and
mostly get the code right on the first try. At least with handwriting,
each number is not announced when I write it in. I have never used
Braille screen input, but it probably works the same way. I do wish I
knew of a gesture to erase the last thing entered with handwriting,
like you can do with braille input, but oh well. I've got several
chances to enter the passcode in correctly so it doesn't bother me.

Hi Wayne,

A 2-finger swipe from right to left will erase the last letter written with handwriting and this does work in the lockscreen. I just deliberately tried this by writing the first number of my passcode correctly, then I wrote a 3 where in fact the second number of my passcode should be a 5, I did a 2-finger swipe from right to left, then wrote the 5 and the other 2 numbers of my 4-digit passcode and the phone unlocked. Voiceover gives correct feedback during this, e.g. after I draw my first digit, Voiceover clicks and says "1 value". If I draw the second digit it clicks and says 2 values, if I do a 2-finger swipe right to left it again says "1 value" indicating that I just deleted the digit I wrote and so on.


Regards,
Sieghard

Subject: I'm Tellin' You, Lock It Down
Hello Everyone,
As I have posted, I support several people on both iOS and OSX as both
clients and friends.
One of my friends, a fellow VoiceOver user, until now, has fervently refused
to setup either a Touch-ID or PIN on her iPhone 6, despite my suggestions to
the contrary. She said she thought it was too much trouble.
Today, she called me and told me that she, upon returning from a short
vacation with her family, accidentally left her phone in her sister's house,
approximately 800 miles away.
While her sister will FedEx the phone back to her, my friend was afraid that
her sister would and, according to her, most likely did, snoop on her phone.
She truly laments not having taken the time to setup her Touch-ID and
password.
I'm tellin' you, lock it down before it's too late (smile).

Oh, so do you have fingerprint enabled for both of you, or just your wife?
I didn't think it could take more than one fingerprint?

Why would your friend need your passcode? My wife knows my passcode
and she can also use her finger to unlock my phone, in case I cannot
enter it due to injury or the rare times that I am unresponsive. Other
than her, no one else needs access.

Hi all,
I've tried entering my pass code by the braille input method and it works well. This will now be my input method of choice as voiceover doesn't speak the numbers so no one will learn my pass code.
Take care,

I think it's already been mentioned, but when you enter your passcode
with the hand writing mode, the alphanumeric characters aren't echoed by
VoiceOver either.

Hi all,
I've tried entering my pass code by the braille input method and it works
well. This will now be my input method of choice as voiceover doesn't speak
the numbers so no one will learn my pass code.
Take care,
Carla.

Oh, so do you have fingerprint enabled for both of you, or just your wife?
I didn't think it could take more than one fingerprint?

Why would your friend need your passcode? My wife knows my passcode
and she can also use her finger to unlock my phone, in case I cannot
enter it due to injury or the rare times that I am unresponsive. Other
than her, no one else needs access.

I would probably put in a number code if I were to dare to do it. Is it
the number type keypad that comes up, or are the numbers across in one

Hello Everyone,
As I have posted, I support several people on both iOS and OSX as both
clients and friends.
One of my friends, a fellow VoiceOver user, until now, has fervently refused
to setup either a Touch-ID or PIN on her iPhone 6, despite my
suggestions
to
the contrary. She said she thought it was too much trouble.
Today, she called me and told me that she, upon returning from a short
vacation with her family, accidentally left her phone in her sister's house,
approximately 800 miles away.
While her sister will FedEx the phone back to her, my friend was afraid that
her sister would and, according to her, most likely did, snoop on her phone.
She truly laments not having taken the time to setup her Touch-ID and
password.
I'm tellin' you, lock it down before it's too late (smile).

Carol,
When you reboot your phone, VoiceOver starts and says, "VoiceOver On."
There is then a short delay when you can enter your passcode to unlock
your phone. If you do nothing, after a few seconds the screen locks.

If you waited too long to enter your passcode and the screen has locked, just press the home button or the sleep/wake button, and the lock screen will appear again. You can then enter your passcode as normal.


Thanks,

OK, so what can you do at that point? Unlock as usual, or what?

Carol,
When you reboot your phone, VoiceOver starts and says, "VoiceOver On."
There is then a short delay when you can enter your passcode to unlock
your phone. If you do nothing, after a few seconds the screen locks.

Hi all,
I've tried entering my pass code by the braille input method and it works
well. This will now be my input method of choice as voiceover doesn't speak
the numbers so no one will learn my pass code.
Take care,
Carla.

Why would your friend need your passcode? My wife knows my passcode
and she can also use her finger to unlock my phone, in case I cannot
enter it due to injury or the rare times that I am unresponsive. Other
than her, no one else needs access.

the number type keypad that comes up, or are the numbers across in one

Hello Everyone,
As I have posted, I support several people on both iOS and OSX as both
clients and friends.
One of my friends, a fellow VoiceOver user, until now, has fervently refused
to setup either a Touch-ID or PIN on her iPhone 6, despite my
suggestions
to
the contrary. She said she thought it was too much trouble.
Today, she called me and told me that she, upon returning from a short
vacation with her family, accidentally left her phone in her sister's house,
approximately 800 miles away.
While her sister will FedEx the phone back to her, my friend was afraid that
her sister would and, according to her, most likely did, snoop on her phone.
She truly laments not having taken the time to setup her Touch-ID and
password.
I'm tellin' you, lock it down before it's too late (smile).

This is the method I'd choose but have only got a 4S at present so may go
with a pass code but not sure that its worth doing till I upgrade. Nobody
has told me yet whether you get a prompt when you have booted up so that you
can enter the password and what else can you do at that stage. Presumably
you can unlock the phone, or is it already unlocked, and you must be able to
turn the rotor so as to be brailling in a field, if that's what you want to
do. Perhaps someone could address these things. Thanks.

Subject: I'm Tellin' You, Lock It Down
Hello Everyone,
As I have posted, I support several people on both iOS and OSX as both
clients and friends.
One of my friends, a fellow VoiceOver user, until now, has fervently refused
to setup either a Touch-ID or PIN on her iPhone 6, despite my
suggestions
to
the contrary. She said she thought it was too much trouble.
Today, she called me and told me that she, upon returning from a short
vacation with her family, accidentally left her phone in her sister's house,
approximately 800 miles away.
While her sister will FedEx the phone back to her, my friend was afraid that
her sister would and, according to her, most likely did, snoop on her phone.
She truly laments not having taken the time to setup her Touch-ID and
password.
I'm tellin' you, lock it down before it's too late (smile).

I have a password set up on my iPhone as well as the fingerprint ID the numbers for the password are set up just like the phone numbers when you dial a phone number the same same keypad layout so but if you have the capability of sending the fingerprint and the password number I do both because I've had it where I can voiceover got turned off and thus I couldn't tell what the numbers were for the keypad I would let me turn voiceover on so I had my fingerprint to open up the sting able to turn voiceover on so that is the reason why I would have both because I've had to use it since the fingerprint thing started okay so this is my two cents worth have a good day everybody

If you set up Voiceover to come on with a triple click of the home button then this will work also in the lock screen. Same goes for SIRI, you can ask SIRI to turn Voiceover off or on without unlocking your phone.

Hi all,
I've tried entering my pass code by the braille input method and it works well. This will now be my input method of choice as voiceover doesn't speak the numbers so no one will learn my pass code.
Take care,

Why would your friend need your passcode? My wife knows my passcode
and she can also use her finger to unlock my phone, in case I cannot
enter it due to injury or the rare times that I am unresponsive. Other
than her, no one else needs access.

Thanks Carla, and everyone else for sharing about using the Braille method for entering my pass code. I use MBraille so hadn’t thought to use this method to unlock my phone. I’ll be using it in the future! I always find great info on this list.
Blessings,
Susan
