    Once the phone has been activated, we will see the Lock screen.
    To unlock the phone, we swipe the screen upwards. Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen; and there will be icons at the bottom of the screen. We need one of the icons on the bottom because we want to open up the applications folder.

    We can edit the choice, as there are two other options.
    The other options are "Every 30 minutes" and "Never". We can choose to never have to authenticate ourselves for purchases. We can choose to authenticate our identity every 30 minutes.

    If we want to choose one of the options, we just tap one of them.
    Let's tap "Never" to choose it, for example. The phone is going to ask us to enter our password by saying "Disabling authentication may result in unauthorized purchases. You assume responsibility for all charges". The phone asks us to enter our password. We can do that now.
