Galaxy TabPro S: What are the Different Lock Screens on my Galaxy TabPro S?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Lock Screen

Pressing the Power key turns off the screen and locks it. Also, the screen turns off and automatically locks if the device is not used for a specified period. To unlock the screen, press the Power key and drag the locked screen upwards. You can change the way you lock the screen to prevent others from accessing your personal information. But you must add a password before you can use the other lock methods.

Warning: If the unlock code is forgotten, take the device to a Samsung Service Center to reset it. We understand the inconvenience but this is the only way to get a chance to recover stolen devices.

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