It's important to set your phone to lock automatically to prevent others from accessing your files and information in case it gets lost or stolen.
Here are ways that can help secure your phone:
- Screen lock: Secure your phone with a PIN, password, or pattern. See
Setting a screen lock.
- Fingerprint: Add your fingerprint and use it for waking up and unlocking your phone. See
- Face Unlock: Set your phone to unlock using your registered face when you're on the lock screen. See
- Smart Lock: Set your phone to automatically unlock when it's safe with you, such as when your phone is in your pocket or you're at home. See
Setting up Smart Lock.
