Manage Apps on Your Smart TV
Your Samsung TV offers access to many exciting apps and games. Whether you have The Frame, a QLED, or any other Samsung smart TV, it's easy to find the app you want and start enjoying more entertainment on your TV. Aside from installing or deleting apps, you can also set them to update automatically on your smart TV.
Install an App
To search for a specific app, select the Search icon on the top right.
One of the best parts of having a smart TV is all of its apps. You can download your favorite social media or TV network's app or find a new game, for instance.
To find apps to install, navigate to Apps and select the app you want. You'll see detailed information about the app. From here, select Install.
Open an App
Once you've downloaded the apps you want, it's time to enjoy them. There are two ways you can open an app. From the Home Screen, use the directional pad on the Samsung Smart Remote and select the desired app to launch.

Lock and Unlock Apps
The default PIN is 0000. To change the PIN, navigate to Settings > General > System Manager > Change PIN.
When an app is locked, you will have to enter the TV's PIN every time you open the app - it's great for keeping certain apps private.
To lock or unlock an app, navigate to Apps and then select Settings on the top right. Select the app you want to lock or unlock, and select Lock/Unlock.
