Is there a way to get rid of iPhone 6 digit numeric passcode?

They finessed me into entering a 6 digit passcode. I understand the security ideas.

Is there a way to get rid of that?

Thanks

The steps for the iPhone 4, 4s, 5, or 5c are Settings > Passcode. for other models,   Settings  > Touch ID & Passcode.

Enter your passcode then tap Turn Passcode Off.

Note: When passcode is turned off, Touch ID is disabled.

Agree with Ramin.

Additionally, if you want to change from 6 digit passcode to something else do the following:
On iOS 11
Go to Settings
Touch ID & Passcode
Enter your passcode
Change Passcode
Enter your passcode
Click Passcode Options and get:
Custom Alphanumeric Code
or
Custom Numeric Code
or
4-Digit Numeric Code
or
Cancel
