What makes you think that they can bypass your passcode. If you had a good passcode, after 6 attempts the phone will begin to disable, and shortly thereafter, it will disable completely. They will have to restore the phone to remove the passcode. However, since you did not have Find my iPhone on, they will be able to do that. However, your data will be safe, since they have to wipe the phone to regain access.
