Yeah. Like when you setup your "swipe" you have to first set the security level, and then make the swipe and confirm it. You could do initials, a shape, or or draw a number... the possibilities are endless. It really depends on how difficult you make it for yourself. I mean, if the phone is locked and you get a call, you don't want to set the security level to 4 and then have 4 three fingered swipe patterns to unlock it. You would miss the call because it's almost a guarantee that you would screw it up- especially if it was an important call and you were too hasty.
