Galaxy Tab S2 - How do I set up a Lock Screen PIN on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2?

When you set a PIN (with at least four numbers) 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.

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

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps  > Settings  > Lock screen and security.

  2. Touch Screen lock type.

  3. If you have previously set up a different type of lock, you will be required to enter your credentials. For this example, we have to draw thepattern previously registered.

  4. Touch Fingerprints.    

  5. Enter an alphanumeric Password. A Password must be a minimum of four digits, but no more than 16 digits. Alphanumeric means the password must contain letters and numbers for maximum safety. Then, touch CONTINUE.

  6. Re-enter the same alphanumeric sequence and touch OK.

  7. Select how much notification information you want to display on the lock screen, if prompted. Then, touch DONE.

  8. Press the Power button twice to access lock screen. Then, swipe your finger in any direction to unlock the screen.

  9. Enter your Password and touch Done to unlock the device.
