what's the set up for the f900bt and f90bt regards to security?
Does it have a face-off?
Strange one... is it easy/possible to debadge Pioneer headunits? Thinking if I can make it look factory, it may deter prying eyes!

For example if the power is disconnected will the unit ask for a password when power is pluged back in?

That leaves me with:
Debadging -- How easy is it generally to remove the Pioneer/Premiere labels? (I suppose the ultimate would be a sticker with a car manufacturer to overlay on top of it.)
Fake covers -- Are there any companies that make these? I'm not sure I have the level of commitment nor expertise to do it well myself

A fake cover is pointless because you can't cover the knob...plus it would have to stick out..even if only a little...clearly indicating that you're hiding something.
Not true, you just need to set the unit back about a half inch from where it normally would have rested. This unit has a pretty slim profile (the new knob is shorter than the D-series, which helps even though the new knob sucks )
I had my installer fabricate a faceplate out of my Nissan Frontier stock head unit and it looks perfect, I'll post some pics later. There's also a dude on NissanForums.com who has the same setup, he just used a Toyota stock stereo and you'd never know it wasn't stock unless you spent a lot of time trying to study it.
With my windows tinted and alarm sensitivity cranked up, you better not lean on the truck while you're pressing your face up to the glass

My best theft deterrant hasn't been my car alarm (that I hate because I always manage to set the stupid thing off by accident), but just putting something hanging over the dash to cover the stereo. Not sure why exactly it works (I assume because if they can't see it, that means it doesn't exist, just like playing "peek-a-boo" with a baby), but haven't had anyone try to break into my car for over two years now and I had my car broken into 3 times in the first two years I lived here before my "method", so it seem effective enough for me.

Be sure that you have everything plugged up before your done, cause it's a bitch to get out now.
