How to Turn Off the Passcode on the Apple Watch


Your Apple Watch can contain some fairly sensitive information, so one of the initial steps when you first set it up involved creating a passcode. This passcode needs to be entered each time you put the watch on your wrist, which is a helpful security measure in the event that your watch is ever stolen.

But you may find that you don’t like having a passcode on the Apple Watch, and that you want to remove it. Fortunately you can do this in two separate ways; either directly from the Apple Watch itself, or through the Watch app on your iPhone.
