Is it possible to encrypt my device and use a PIN for my lock screen?

Standard Android seems to allow this, but when I try to encrypt my Note 3 I am only allowed to select a full password (6 characters, at least 1 number).  Is this something Verizon changed, or is it because of something else I have setup on my device (like an account or something)?

I can clarify jayjanssen! This is a standard feature on the Note 3. The unlock password must contain at least 6 characters, containing at least 1 number. Thank you.

I'm not sure I'd call it a feature, but thanks for the info.
