Galaxy S7: About the lock screen

Last Update date : 2017.06.15

Compared to previous phone series, the Samsung Galaxy S7 requires 2 steps to unlock the device when Security has been set for the Lock Screen. 


This is Google’s new concept to reinforce the device security and its common concept for devices based on Android OS 6.0 (Marshmallow). You can unlock your device with PIN, Pattern or Password which you set even if you set your lock screen as Fingerprint.


Please see a sample of 2 steps of the unlocking process below:


Step 1: Swipe on lock screen upon getting a notification message. 





Step 2: Input PIN/Pattern/Password for unlocking the device.
