You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, I'm going to demonstrate how to change your "Lock Screen Security" to "Password" on the Nexus 6P.
From the home screen, take two fingers and swipe down
This will reveal the gear shaped icon, which is the "Settings" menu
After you tap on it once, you will scroll down until you see the "Personal" cluster
Then click on "Security."
From here, you will see that the current "Screen lock" is set to "PIN."
If we tap on this, it will ask us to enter our PIN
Then we will click on the green arrow
Now we can change our PIN to Password
It will ask us if we want to require the password at the start-up of the phone
I will leave that as a requirement
Then, I will click on "CONTINUE."
Then, I will type the password, that will be at least four characters
Then, I will click "CONTINUE."
I will retype it again to confirm and click on "OK."
Now I will press the Circle icon to go back to the home screen
Then I will lock the device by pressing the Power button
I will press the Power button one more time to show the notification panel
And then I will unlock, by swiping from the bottom of the screen upward
Now, enter your password and tap on the checkmark in the lower-right corner of the phone
