    As we can see right below this option, it will read "Set up SIM 2 card lock".
    The procedures that we are going to show will work for either of these options, for SIM card 1 and 2. Make sure to choose the right SIM that we want to use at this moment.

    Press down on the SIM card you would like to add a card lock to, in our case we will press down on the option for SIM card 1.
    This is because we currently only have one SIM card inserted in our HTC One M8.
