Set PIN to Unlock the Nexus 6P
Djinu, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to demonstrate how to change the "Lock Screen Mode" from "Pattern Unlock" to "PIN Unlock".
To do this, we'll take two fingers and swipe from the top to reveal the "Settings" icon
It's the gear-shaped icon on the top right
Lets tap on it once.
We'll scroll down until we reach the "Personal" menu cluster and then we'll tap on "Security."
Here, we'll tap on "Screen lock." It's currently set on "Pattern."
It will prompt us to enter our Pattern
After we have entered the pattern, we can change this to PIN
It will give an option of requiring the PIN to start the device and I will leave that as it is and click on "CONTINUE."
Now, I will create a PIN, which has to be at least four digits, but fewer than seventeen
With our four-digit PIN, I will click on "CONTINUE."
Reenter that four-digit PIN to confirm it
Now, press the Circle button to go back to the home screen
Then, press the power button to turn off the device and lock it
Press the power button once again to unlock the device
Then, swipe up to enter the PIN code
Enter the PIN code that you have just created
Then, press the check mark in the lower-right corner
