    Do you lock your phone?

    I noticed my brother has a password on his phone - I guess this is because he has kids and doesn't want them messing around with it. I've never felt the need to lock my phone as I always have it on me. However I do have a banking app, so maybe I should lock it in case it gets lost. Is you're phone secured somehow?

    I have a very smart parrot who has learned to use the touch screen. I'm not sure if he uses his beak (seems it wouldn't be sensitive enough) or his tongue, but he has made calls and sent gibberish text messages to enough people that I now choose to keep the phone locked. If he ever figures that out, I'm at a loss, haha.

    I normally just use the key lock on mine. I don't have a password set up, but perhaps if I had kids I would set one to stop them using my phone.

    Always, I have kids. I also have extremely nosy co-workers who have no issues trying to use auto login to get into anything of mine from a social site login to work related matters (many of which, they are not approved to view).

    I don't have any problem with someone trying to get into my stuff so I don't feel the need to lock mine. My boyfriend has a lock pattern on his for security.

    I would like to see this parrot in action. My phone auto locks, but if it didn't, I would lock it anyway. You can never be too careful nowadays, especially with how much personal information is stored on smartphones.

    I have kids too and its the only reason I lock it, otherwise I have no need. Spouse & I have known one another for almost 20 years, we do not hide anything from one another. Now the kids, thats another story.
