If someone steals your ipod, all they have to do is restore it ....
I think its more for laying it down and someone getting on your ipod an using it while your out of the room or seeing private videos, photos
It's to keep douchebags from getting a little too hands on with your iPod. Pretty simple, right?
I hate people borrowing my iPod, not that I'm selfish. It's just a way of saying "don't touch my iPod" kinda thing. Yeah, I let people borrow it. The farthest that they gone through was only the springboard. They never opened any applications because of the password.
and blah blah blah. Well, thats the reason for all of these iPod Security/Passcode applications.
bottom line is: Some people use these as PDAs with mp3 capabilities. They organize their entire lives around the device. It tells them when to eat, sleep, meet with X corporation, take the dog out, etc. They put in credit card numbers, bank info, etc... you get the point. Security keeps people from seeing this info that maybe everyone should not see. Of course the best security is to not put that stuff in there and use it as an mp3 player
I just don't want a family member, or kid to see all the porn I have on mine...video is the only thing protected on my touch.
Yeah but if they restore the iPod, all the data will be gone and they will never be able to see all the important data you have on your iPod.
To keep annoying siblings and parents out of your music/videos/bookmarks/history/settings/appstore. Yea if it gets stolen you're screwed. But I find passcodes useful for the previously mentioned.
how do u block just your videos??
