Since the Ballet Crypto app does not have a password or PIN code, couldn’t anyone who accesses my mobile device steal the coins stored on my Ballet wallet?

No, because your wallet’s encrypted private key and passphrase are never stored on your device. They are stored on your physical Ballet wallet itself, and nowhere else. When you want to send a transaction from your Ballet wallet, the app will prompt you to enter the passphrase and scan the encrypted private key. At that moment, the passphrase and encrypted private key cryptographically sign the transaction, but they are erased from memory immediately, never stored on the device. To keep your coins safe, you only need to worry about the physical security of the Ballet wallet itself. If someone steals your phone, they will not be able to spend the coins stored on your wallet. You can just add your Ballet wallet to the Ballet Crypto app on your new phone.
