    If you want to add some SIM security, you can put PIN protection on, which means you will have to enter your PIN every time you want to enter your phone.
    If that's what you want to do, then this is the perfect tutorial for you. We are going to show you how to do it. First we need to swipe down to the notification panel.

    The next thing we will do is press the "all settings" option located at the top right-hand corner of the screen under the top green tiles.
    The screen can sometimes be a little delicate.

    If you have dual SIM activated you'll have to put a PIN in for each different SIM card.
    I only have 1 SIM card in this phone, so we are just going to press the only one that is available.

    The middle one, which is the second from the bottom, is SIM security.

    You're going to need to enter your SIM PIN.
    It should be on the card that your SIM came with, so you'll need to keep that information. Hopefully, you'll have that with you. If you don't have that with you, go and get it and then you'll be able to enter it. My PIN is 1-8-1-2, so I will enter that.

    There is also the option for you to change your PIN if you want to make it something more easily remembered.

    Now that the phone is turned off we are going to turn it back on again by holding the power button.
    Wait until you feel the vibration which means the phone is rebooting.

    I am going to have to enter my PIN code.
    It will be the same PIN code as I have used before, but every time that I want to enter the phone from now on, I will be asked to enter the PIN. It's a form of protection so, as you can see, it has appeared.

    If however, you no longer want to do this, because it can take a lot of time, and it can be quite irritating if you have to keep entering the same PIN every time your phone automatically times out, you would go back to the "all settings" menu.
