How to prevent Android lock screen password from being bypassed?

I read that anyone can bypass your Android lock screen password by just entering long (incorrect) passwords. How can I prevent this from happening if I lose my phone?
Some manufacturers have released or in the process of releasing a patch, meanwhile you can switch to pin or pattern unlocking.

"The exploit has already been fixed through a security update for Google's Nexus devices, and it doesn't work if you're using either a PIN code or a pattern unlock. The odds that you'll fall prey to this attack aren't high, folks."
