Steps

  1. 1
    What we can currently see before us is the actual Home screen of the HTC One M8.
    That is because we have deactivated the Lock screen. Normally when we turn the phone on it takes us to the lock screen, giving us a very short time to unlock the phone before it actually falls asleep again. Now we can see that the phone is not falling asleep because the lock screen has been deactivated.

    We want this first option, it says "Screen lock." Currently underneath it says "No lock screen."As we have seen when we turn the phone on there was no lock screen.
    That means obviously, that we have very little protection and that anybody can access this phone. What we want to do is turn on the Lock screen, but not the security screen.
