Samsung Galaxy S7 support.

Locking your screen.

You can secure your phone so it needs a pattern, PIN or password every time it's turned on, or every time it wakes up from sleep mode (when the screen is off).

You should make sure you've signed into your phone with a Google account in case you lose your phone or forget your screen lock.

To lock your screen:

  1. On the homescreen, tap Apps

  2. Tap Settings

  3. Tap Lock screen and security

  4. Tap Screen lock type

  5. Choose the type of screen lock you want to set up and follow the onscreen instructions

  6. You'll be asked if you want to show details of your messages, emails and calls on the lock screen. Tap Done

  7. To set up an additional fingerprint lock, tap Set up or Later

    Your chosen screen lock will now be set up on your phone.
