Setting up a passcode on Apple Watch is now unavoidable as now you can set up Apple Pay on your Apple Watch. But don’t you think that it is difficult to type your passcode on that small screen of Apple Watch? Of course yes! Thankfully, there are only a couple of situations when you have to enter a passcode on your Apple Watch: rebooting your Apple Watch, manually lock and unlock the watch, and when you remove your watch from the wrist and then tie it again. If you wear your Apple Watch all day, you just have to enter that passcode in the morning. Let’s check how you can set passcode on Apple Watch.

Note that your Apple Watch passcode doesn’t work in the same way as does your iPhone passcode work. On your iPhone, you need to type your passcode each time you want to unlock the phone. This is not the case with Apple Watch. An Apple Watch passcode is the best way to protect the privacy of the user; as the hype goes, it is not that uncomfortable to enable a passcode on Apple Watch. Check this tutorial and you will get to know how easy it is to turn on Apple Watch passcode.

Passcode is one feature that can be independently used on Apple Watch; you don’t need to do anything on the paired iPhone. For example, if you want to change or remove passcode on your Apple Watch, you can do this directly on your watch instead of going to the Watch app on the iPhone. Similarly, you can turn off, lock and unlock your Apple Watch from the watch itself. The idea of using your watch to change the passcode allows you to quickly take actions; so if you want to remove passcode on Apple Watch, you don’t have to go to the connected iPhone. Similarly, if you wish to disable passcode on Apple Watch, you can do it comfortably on your watch directly.
