Set your phone to lock automatically

Want to protect your phone against unauthorised use? Define a security code, and set your phone to lock itself automatically when you're not using it.

  1. Tap settings iconSettings > lock+wallpaper.
  2. Switch password to toggle on iconOn, and type in a security code (at least 4 digits).
  3. Tap Require a password after, and define the length of time after which the phone is locked automatically.

Keep the security code secret and in a safe place separate from your phone. If you forget the security code, and cannot recover it, or you enter the wrong code too many times, your phone will require service. Additional charges may apply, and all the personal data in your phone may be deleted. For more information, contact Nokia Care or your phone dealer.
