Apps → Settings → Lock screen and security → Screen lock type → Password → Set and confirm password → Set notifications on lock screen → DONE

a). Tap on Apps icon from the Home screen.




b). Tap on Settings icon.




c). Select and tap on Lock screen and security settings.




d). Tap on Screen lock type.

g). Tap on Continue.




h). Enter the same Password again to confirm it.




i). Tap on Ok.




j). You can select the display options for notifications on the lock screen and then tap on Done.




NOTE : Your password must contain at least 4 characters, including at least one letter.
