    In this video, we'll learn how to turn on or off the option to allow the quick call function to bypass the security screen, which means that when the security screen is set up, even if the phone is locked, we can still access the quick call function just by swiping across the screen
    .
    The security screen will be bypassed, and we'll be taken straight into the phone. It will then allow us to call people. Below "Bypass Security screen" it currently says, "Bypass Security screen when using Quick call". This option can be activated by pressing down on the white box to add a check to it. The default setting is to have this option turned off.

    When we activate it by pressing down on the empty box, a white check will be added, and the box will turn green
    .

  15. 15
    Obviously, the danger to this function is that it allows people to access our phone, even though the security screen is set up
    .
    That makes it very easy to access the phone, which is why the default setting is for it to be turned off. However, if we do want to use this function, then we'll need to turn it on by pressing the box and making sure the check is in the box.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    We can turn this function off by pressing down on the box again
    .
    The check will be removed, and this function will no longer be activated.
