What model of Kindle do you have? The method will vary depending on the model.

The option will be in the settings but without knowing which Kindle you have we can't give any further information.

It stops them long enough to get it deregistered. For them to get past it they would need to reset to factory defaults which would wipe the Kindle anyway. I always use passwords when I am out and about.

I've found, IMHO, that the "when it just doesnt work at all for some reason" is usually due to operator error.

I never forget my passwords and they always work. If for some reason it didn't then I would just do a factory reset and redownload my books.

Simple... you use a password you won't forget and then you don't forget it. If remembering passwords is hard for you just use your darn birth-date mixed with some other word you can't forget for crying out loud. That has to be the worst excuse I have ever heard for telling someone to not using a password.
