- Touch Lock screen and security .
Note: It may be necessary to touch the PERSONAL tab and then touch Lock screen and security.
- Touch Other security settings.

Calling, messaging, and other functions may not be available while an application is pinned to the screen. Access to other applications will be prevented.

- Touch in the bottom-right corner of the application window.
- Review the information about pinning applications and touch START.
