Set up a screen lock

Locking your device can help prevent your device from sending accidental messages or pocket dialing. Before you can
unlock your device and access the data on your device, you must enter your password, PIN, or pattern, or swipe the screen.
If you use your device for work, depending on the rules set up by your administrator, you might not be able to use a pattern
or swipe gesture to unlock your device.


Swipe down from the top of the screen once using two fingers, or twice using one finger.



> Security > Screen lock.


Tap the type of screen lock you want to use.


Complete the instructions on the screen.

Note: Using a swipe gesture to unlock your screen is not a secure way to prevent others from accessing the data and
features on your device.
