Password/pin number problem with Motorola Droid Maxx Razr
My wife just bought a new Motorola Droid Maxx Razr.
Let me state in the beginning, I know nothing about them.
I'm trying to get her to protect it with either a password/phrase or
pin number. She says it is too much of a bother because each time she
puts the phone down it times out after the minute she has it set for.
Each time it times out she says she would have to go through the three
screens or so it takes to reach the pin or password input. She says
if she sets the time out to a longer time it will use up the battery
faster. The phone without security worries me because of the info on
it. If she were to set the time out to about 5 or 10 minutes, it would
obviate her having to keep re-entering the password or pin as would be
necessary with only a time out of some seconds, or even a minute.
Just how much battery drain would a 5 or 10 minute time out entail?

The longer the screen is on the more battery it uses. I would also recommend pattern unlock as it is easier, but less secure if you never wipe/clean your screen
