Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

When you set a password (with at least four characters, numbers, or symbols) for the screen lock method, you can protect your personal information by preventing others from accessing your device. After a screen lock method is selected, the device requires an unlock code whenever unlocking it.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
