7. Enter code. Default code is '0000'

8. You can manage Channel Lock Settings.

Don't want your kids accidentally watching unwanted or inappropriate content? You can lock your apps. Please note that you will be asked for a PIN to open the app.

1. From the Home screen, navigate to and select APPS.

2. Navigate to and select the Settings icon in the top right corner.

3. Navigate to the app you’d like to lock, select Lock.

4. Next, enter your PIN to lock the app.

5. The app will now be locked. When the app is selected, you will be prompted to enter your PIN to unlock the app.

Note: The PIN code you enter will be the same as your TV security code. By default, this is 0000.
