    Has anyone else noticed that on the Classic, if the picture password is enabled, you can bypass it by selecting the hang up button and/or the return arrow to the left of the hang up button? It then reverts back to the standard passphrase, which I don't like...

    Is there a way to disable it reverting back to the passphrase when picture password is enabled?

    I don't think so, but it shouldn't matter. Both keeps the device securely locked. It's just that the picture password is quicker and said to thwart the possibility of someone visually figuring out your password.

    Yes, but the whole point of the picture pw is to prevent ppl from visually seeing/memorizing the buttons you press for the non picture pw. If a simple press of the hangup or back button negates any added benefits of the picture pw, then there's really no point in having it... this didn't happen on my Q10 or Passport, unless I entered the picture pw incorrectly multiple times...which still kind of defeats the purpose too

    If you accidentally pressed one of those buttons and get the digit screen, you can get back the picture password screen by hitting cancel and swiping up again, so you won't be force to enter the digits.

    Thanks for the tip -- I guess I just ONLY want the option for picture password, if that's the preference I selected. Guess that's not available on the Classic at this time
