What blocking options can be used?
You can configure your device so that it does not crash. This way you will always be active. The advantage of this is that you can access the main screen quickly. However, one of the disadvantages of this type of configuration is that it consumes too much battery. Therefore, if you want to do this, we recommend that you look for an application to save your mobile battery .
Another solution is that you establish a waiting time with the screen on, so that the mobile eventually turns off the screen even if it does not block it. You can do this by entering Settings from the main menu or from the shortcut that you have at the top of the screen by sliding your finger down.
To choose the inactivity time with the screen on, look in the Settings menu for the option “ Lock screen and password ”. Then go to “Suspend after … “. There it will give you different options, you can choose the one you prefer.
An alternative you have is to choose the “Slide ” option to be able to unlock the phone quickly. But another disadvantage is that these options do not offer us any type of protection, so anyone will have access to your personal data.
Standard options: set unlock pattern, PIN or password
You can use a pattern. To do this, you must draw a pattern on the screen by sliding your finger across a square with nine points. You will need to do it twice to confirm the pattern. In addition, you can choose to see the pattern you draw while you are trying to unlock the screen, or make the pattern lines invisible so that no one around you can guess it.
To do this, go back to “Set screen lock” and enter the pattern. The next thing will be to deactivate “Make the pattern visible” in case you do not want your device to show what you are drawing, or activate it so that it can be seen.
Another method is through a PIN, it is a numeric code of at least four digits. It is one of the most recommended, as it is one of the safest there is. The longer the pin, the more secure it will be.
If you want to add an alphanumeric code or a word, you must choose “Password”, it must have at least four letters and / or numbers and a maximum of 16 characters. To make it more secure, we recommend using letters and numbers, as this will make it more difficult to guess.
