Initial lock-code aka security-code setup should be protected

To not accidentally setup a code and forget about it (aka your kids play with your phone and set something and forget about it) the setup for the security-code should be protected by PIN2 (just like in the old days the advanced setup was just protected by PIN2 instead of lock-codes) or the Jolla account password or even both. While we are at it, change of SIM should be secured by "something" too!

I consider it a bug that anyone with my phone in his/her hands can initially set the device-lock-code without me knowing it even exists (speaking for $user).

exactly this happened to me. Suddenly my security code is set and I have no idea where it comes from. Maybe my children played with it, maybe accidentally by putting it in my pocket without locking it, ... I don't know. But now I have a big problem :-/. It really seems to be the only way to send it to Jolla. I'm definitely with you, that the security code should be protected with PIN2 or PUK of the SIM
