Title: PASSCODES FOR COMPUTING DEVICES
Abstract:
Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for creating a unified passcode. One of the methods includes identifying that an application program installed on the system is assigned to a profile for an organization, identifying that the profile requires a passcode to allow access to the application program, providing a user interface with which user input is able to specify whether the system should use separate passcodes to unlock the system and provide access to the application program, receiving first user input that specifies that the system is to use a single passcode to both unlock the system and provide access to the application program, receiving, while the system is locked, second user input that specifies the single passcode, unlocking the system, receiving user input that selects a user interface element to activate the application program, and activating the application program without requesting a passcode.
