◆ How to edit password settings?
It’s not just emergencies that require a password, it can also be a user who wants to change their password or turn off certain features that require a password. Whatever the reason, here’s how to edit your password settings:
With Apple Watch: Users go to Settings => pull down Password => select Change password => enter the current password and then enter the new password (2 times).
With iPhone: Open the Watch app => go to My Watch => pull down Password => select Change password => enter the new password twice to confirm.
Users can turn off the passcode by iPhone or the watch itself.
With an Apple watch: Go to Settings => down to Passwords => tap Turn off password => a message will appear saying your Apple Pay card will be removed from the watch => tap Turn off .
With iPhone: Open the Watch app => go to My Watch => go to Passwords and disable this feature.
Although these are just basic password settings, users can enable or disable some other settings. All the steps are pretty much the same, the user either accesses the Passcode on the Apple watch or goes to the Watch app on the iPhone. Multiple access methods also help people who have lost their Apple Watch not have to worry about someone accessing their data without their knowledge.
You can also set up Unlock with iPhone , a feature that helps the watch unlock itself whenever the user unlocks his or her iPhone. A simple passcode will allow you to use a 4-digit passcode (instead of a 7-digit), but keep in mind that the longer the password, the more secure it is, although this is an option that simplifies the process – especially with security-enhancing settings.
If you are using a passcode consider turning on Wrist Detection , once the watch is not on the wrist it will ask for the passcode to unlock it. This is a good choice to keep data safe in case of loss. Or the Clear data setting allows all data to be deleted after 10 failed passcode attempts.
