Set your phone to lock automatically
Want to protect your phone against unauthorised use? Define a security code, and set your phone to lock itself automatically when you're not using it.
Select and Security > Device lock .
Select Security code, and enter a security code (at least 5 characters). You can use numbers, symbols, and upper and lower case letters.
Keep the security code secret and in a safe place separate from your phone. If you forget the security code, and cannot recover it, your personal data is deleted before you can use the phone again. If you've set the number of times you can enter the wrong security code, your phone deletes your data and resets itself back to original settings after the last try. If you haven't limited the number of times, your phone requires service before you can use it again.
Select Autolock, and define the length of time after which the phone is locked automatically.
Unlock your phone
Press the power key, and swipe from the outside of the screen onto the screen. You can swipe from any direction.
Enter the security code, and select OK.
