How to Replace Your iPhone and iPad Passcode to Binary-Centric Dots
To lock your iPhone or iPad you can use different methods like putting passcode or pin, using fingerprint, pattern, password, face or iris recognition. But recently an iOS developer called eskimo_dev has released a new method of lock screen called BinaryPasscode, which is hight in the security to protect your privacy from unauthorized access.
The step by step guide below shows you how to replace your iPhone or iPad Passcode to Binary-Centric Dots.
Actually, BinaryPasscode replaces the typical numbers that appear inside each of the passcode entry buttons to binary-centric dot patterns. If you are not familiar with binary-centric numbers then it would be somewhat puzzling for the first time.
Basically, there are four dots in each button, the following tips will help you to understand this.
- Column 1 represents “8”
- Column 2 represents “4”
- Column 3 represents “2”
- Column 4 represents “1”
You can add these values together to represent a number.
For example, in the case of the #5 key, columns 2 and 4 are illuminated, which as per the legend above, represents: 4 + 1 = 5. Likewise, in the case of the #7 key, columns 2, 3, and 4 are illuminated, which represents: 4 + 2 + 1 = 7. And lastly, in the case of the #0 key, none of the columns are illuminated, as 0 = 0.
