About smart password entry
If you use advanced authentication and your BlackBerry smartphone password or smart card password is numeric, you
might be able to use smart password entry in some password fields. When smart password entry is turned on, your
smartphone is designed to remember the format of a password that you type in a password field. When you type the
password again, your smartphone applies a smart password filter to the password field. If the password is numeric, a 123
indicator appears beside the password field and you do not have to press the
key to type numbers. If the password
is alphanumeric, an ABC indicator appears beside the password field.
To use smart password entry, advanced authentication must be turned on and the correct smart card driver and smart
card reader must be installed on your smartphone.
