Set a Swipe to Unlock Nexus 6P

Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Eng

You're watching VisiHow. In this video tutorial, we're going to demonstrate how to change the "Screen lock" mode to "Swipe". In another video, we demonstrated how to turn off the "Screen lock". Right now, there is no screen lock: you can turn on and off this device without entering a passcode. The advantage of turning on "Swipe" will be that it will display the notification screen without requiring a passcode, and you can access some of the items that you would want on the notification screen like the camera or the notifications.
