Code; more possible combinations and it doesn't leave an obvious swipe pattern in finger sweat/grease on the screen.

The amount of times I see people fail their own patterns is nuts. The phone often misses out the start or end points and corners don't always match. Useful for someone watching over your shoulder as you fail 3 times.

Code is the way.
