You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to change the lock-screen security type to "Password" on the Lenovo A7000-series smartphone.
In order to change the lock-screen security type, we are going to need to tap the Settings icon once.
The icon is gear-shaped, and it features prominently on the home screen of the phone.
If we don't have the Settings icon, we need to simply swipe down from the top.
It may happen in the event we customized our phone. Swiping down will open the notification panel.
We swipe down from the top once more.
We will have the Settings icon. It is also gear-shaped.
We tap the Settings icon once.
We will be taken to the main "Settings" panel.
We tap the "Lock screen" icon all the way at the bottom.
The icon is green and has a white padlock inside. It is labelled "Lock screen". One tap on "Lock screen" will take us to the "Lock screen" area.
Under the very first section, "SCREEN SECURITY", we tap "Screen lock" once.
Once we've tapped on "Screen lock", we tap "Password" at the bottom.
It is the fifth option on the list. One tap on "Password" will give us the option to create a password. A very simple password is going to be created for the purpose of this tutorial. However, we may wish to have a more complex password for your own phone.
We type the password.
In this video, it is "asdf".
Then, we can either tap the "Continue" option or the cyan button at the bottom.
Let's tap on "Continue".
We enter the password once more.
It is "asdf" in this video. Now, both our passwords have been entered. They match.
We can tap "OK" or press the cyan arrow.
We will set "Screen lock" to "Password".
In order to confirm that the password has been successfully set, we press the power button one time on the side of our phone.
A single press on the power button will lock the phone.
We press the power button once more.
We will unlock the phone.
We tap the padlock at the bottom and swipe it up.
After we swipe it up, the phone will be unlocked. It will prompt us for a password.
We enter our password.
In this video, we enter "asdf".
Now that we've entered our password, we need to tap the checkbox.
We will enter our phone.
