You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to set a PIN as the lock-screen security method for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
In order to set a PIN for the screen security, we need to have our phone unlocked. We must be on the home screen.
We can reach the home screen by pressing the home button.
We swipe down from the top of the Galaxy S6. Once we've swiped down, we'll be taken to the notification panel.
We tap the gear-shaped icon one time in the upper-right side. We'll be taken to the "Settings" panel.
Under "Quick settings", we will find the "Lock screen and security" icon. The icon is orange and padlock-shaped. We tap it once. Once we've tapped on "Lock screen and security", we'll note that "Screen lock type" is the first option under "Lock screen".
We tap "Scroll lock type". This will take us to the section where we have six options to choose: "Swipe", "Pattern", "PIN", "Password", "Fingerprints", or "None".
For the purpose of this tutorial, we tap on "PIN".
Now that we've tapped "PIN", we need to enter at least four numbers. We can enter more if we want. In this video, we are going to use 1234.
When we've entered the PIN, we tap on "CONTINUE" or "Done".
Again, we enter the same PIN. It is 1234 in this video.
Then we tap on "OK". Once we've done this, we'll be taken to the next window, where we will have the option to choose which notifications will be shown on the lock screen. We can choose "Show content", "Hide content", or "Do not show notifications". It might be preferred not to show notifications if we have problems with security. If we are not worried about security, we can tap "Show content".
Whatever we choose, we tap "DONE" when we are ready. Our "Screen lock type" will be changed to "PIN".
To confirm the changes, we press the home button one time..
Then, we press the lock button to lock the phone.
Once more, we press the lock button to unlock the phone. We'll see the PIN screen lock.
We enter the PIN. It is 1234 in this video.
We tap on "OK". This will unlock the phone.
