Yes, Tread owners got an email saying that now there will be a 4 digit passcode required to start the Tread. They are also automatically turning off the Tread 45 seconds after a workout is done.Rumors are that they will have some sort of digital "lock" built into the Tread software, so that you can't activate the Tread unless you have the physical key and the "passcode"
I haven't heard of any official update but it sounds like the support so far has been pretty messy.
