    Next, we are going to swipe down to the bottom and as you can see, we have "SIM 1 settings"
    .
    If you have a dual SIM activated, and you have two SIM cards in your Microsoft Lumia 535, then you are able to change the individual PIN numbers for both of them. You can also assign the same PIN number to each SIM card if it makes it easy for you to remember but, you will have to do that separately for each SIM card.

    Since we only have one SIM card installed on this device, we are going to select the "SIM 1 settings" option so give that a press
    .

    On this screen, we have the SIM security option - it is the second last option - which we need to turn on

    Once you do that, a new box will appear asking you to enter your current SIM PIN
    .
    You can find your SIM PIN on the plastic card that came with your SIM card. On the card, you will find a selection of PIN numbers, a PUK code and the phone number for that SIM card. You will need that number right now so if you do not have it right now, you can find it and then continue watching this video. I am going to enter the code for this PIN then press enter.
