Galaxy Watch Active2 - Set a security lock (SM-R820 & SM-R830)
You used to leave your regular watch lying around, but that's not a good idea with your smart watch - at least if you don't have a security lock set. With no protection, anyone can access your personal data. But when you set a screen lock, your watch will lock itself after a certain amount of time, and you'll need to enter a PIN or pattern to unlock it.
Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or watch.
You keep a padlock on your suitcase to keep out strangers, but that's not necessary for your smart watch. Just set a digital security lock, so no one can access your stuff. From Settings, swipe to and tap Security. Tap Lock, and then tap Type. You can select from the following lock types:
- Pattern: Set a pattern to draw on the screen to unlock your watch. This provides a medium security level.
- PIN: Set a four-digit PIN to unlock your watch. This provides a medium to high security level.
- None: No lock screen will be set. This provides no security.
To remove the security lock, repeat the steps mentioned above, enter your security information, and then tap None.
