Setting your lock screen is a security feature offered by Samsung to secure your personal, financial, and work information. The Samsung Galaxy allows you to pick which method you would like to use based on personal preferences. You can use the pattern option which allows you to draw a chosen pattern using dots on your screen. The pin option if you find remembering numbers easier, you must choose a least four numbers. The password method allows you to pick numbers, letters, and special characteristics for a more secure lock screen. You can also select to use the Face recognition or fingerprint pad if you don’t want to have to remember another passcode. Regardless of which one you use it is safe to say your smartphone is much more secure than leaving it unlocked.
