Once upon a time, our cell phones would work for anyone, no matter who flipped them open and tried to use them. However, as time went on, the standard changed.
Passcodes can protect your iPhone from being tampered with, either by someone who has found it or stolen it, or simply by a mischievous friend or family member. They keep your data and personal information safe.
However, you may find yourself in a situation where having a password on your iPhone is a nuisance. Maybe you're baking and you need your roommate to keep opening your phone to read instructions. Or maybe your phone is the one controlling the music at a party.
Regardless of the reason, it's easy to turn the passcode on your iPhone off.
However, note that without a passcode, your iPhone won't store your Apple Pay cards, and you can no longer reuse a deactivated passcode to reset your Apple ID if you forget it. You'll also lose Face ID and Touch ID security.
Here's how to turn off the password on your iPhone.
