    Password is the highest security, you can also go through and encrypt everything. Best thing you can do is DL app like lookout that has GPS tracking and allows you remote access to wipe the phone or sound the alarm. Also useful is the ability to write a warning of your owner info on the screen.

    You can change it but it goes up to 9-10 times then it locks you out and sends a email to your gmail. I would recommend make her a user account, that way she knows not to go on yours. The new Kitkat update allows multiple users - it's in settings, device, and users. Just hit add.
