Edited by Grimm, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to change the lock-screen security type to "PIN" on the Lenovo A7000-series smartphone.
To change the lock-screen security type, we need to tap the gear-shaped icon on the home screen.
This will allow us to access our "Settings" panel.
If we don't have the gear-shaped icon, we simply swipe down from the top of the phone.
We swipe down from the top again.
Then, we tap the gear icon.
One tap on the gear icon opens the "Settings" panel.
We tap the "Lock screen" icon towards the bottom.
The icon is green and has a padlock. Once we've tapped on "Lock screen", we will be taken to the "Lock screen" panel.
We tap "Screen lock" under "SCREEN SECURITY".
Now, we tap the fourth option, "PIN".
One tap on "PIN" will open up the PIN panel. We will want to enter a PIN that is easy for us to remember. However, it must be difficult for someone to guess it.
We enter a PIN.
In our case, we will use the short form for the VisiHow web site: "visi". We'll just find the letters on the keypad and enter "visi". That will make the PIN 8474.
Now, we tap the arrow at the bottom one time.
We are required to confirm our PIN.
In this video, 8474 was used earlier. We enter it.
We tap the arrow one more time.
This will confirm setting the PIN.
In order to test the setting, we need to press the power button one time.
One press will lock our phone.
We press the power button again.
We will unlock the phone. We will be on the lock screen.
In order to unlock the phone, we swipe the lock up from the bottom.
We will be asked to enter our PIN.
We enter our PIN. It is 8474 in this video.
Once the PIN has been successfully entered, we tap the checkmark.
A single tap on the checkmark will unlock our phone.
This concludes our tutorial on how to change the lock-screen security type to "PIN" on your Lenovo A7000-series phone. If you have additional questions, comments, or suggestions, please leave them in the section below. Have a great day! Thanks for choosing VisiHow!
