Should a rosary be taken off when one needs to use the bathroom?


Hey I’m wearing the rosary beads as a protection. I pray the rosary atleast once a day, usually before I go to sleep. Do I need to take it off when I need to use the bathroom? It’s like I’m wearing it for protection, not like a talisman, I know protection comes from God but it holds a symbolic importance for me, so I don’t feel like taking it off. So do I really need to take it off, is it a sin to wear it when u need to use the washroom?
