Passcode creation iOS7

by DaveRRRMan / September 25, 2013 10:00 AM PDT

I set up an iPhone and iPad with the new iOS7, but skipped the passcode function on both. Now, with second thoughts, I would like to create and use a passcode. There is a spot in the settings window that says passcode that is now set to OFF. Do I just set it to ON and then creat a passcode, or am I going to lock myself out ? Dave

Just to be sure before I inadvertently screw something up, Yes means I can just go to Settings and turn Passcode Lock ON and then I will be able to type in a passcode and be on my way. NO means I will not lock myself out. Is that correct? Dave
