Solved How do I eliminate the need for the passcode?

Specs: Windows 7
I've never had to use a passcode to get into my phone. I can do it but prefer not to have to. I have looked in settings to try to find where to make a change, but I was unable to find any help.

Tap on the "Settings" app

Scroll down to "Touch ID & Passcode"

Enter your current Passcode

Select "Turn Passcode Off"

This is assuming you have an iPhone that is later than the iPhone 5x. Earlier models have a similar method though and you should be able to figure out the alternative options.

If you still have trouble let us know your iPhone and IOS versions, just in case they might help.

The diagrams are good Derek. Much easier with visual aid.

And if you do decide to use that process... (set up a passcode access routine) ensure you have a hard copy of the code somewhere "safe" - just in case...? Likewise email it to yourself and save the email(s) in the saved messages of your on-line email account(s); bit like a cloud storage area...?

Did something change that a passcode has been added and you don't want one? I could be wrong, but I believe iOS 7 and above actually require a passcode. Unless there's a hack I'm not aware of.

Keep in mind, if you don't have a passcode on the phone, and it's lost or stolen, everything on the phone will be accessible. That includes the ability to disable the "Find my iPhone" app, which normally would allow you to locate the phone from the Apple site.

It could also be that he's connected to his company's exchange server for mail and a password requirement has been set by the company.
