Default password screen login

Hi, I don't feel safe with the pattern recognition screen login, it's pretty easy for a thief to end up figuring out which it is.
An application allowing for password protecting the login screen, instead of pattern recognition, would be a very good idea.

I think the thief would have to be very lucky: after 3 failed pattern attempts the phone will automatically switch to password mode and pattern entry is no longer an option. In password mode, you have to sign in using the username and password of your Google account.

Cheers,
Steve
