Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show you how to turn SIM, which is the Subscriber Identification Module, security with PIN protection on or off when using a Microsoft Lumia 535.
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.
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
