You can protect your data saved in the mobile phone more securely to cope with loss or theft by locking your mobile phone. Set secure screen locking and set Settings > Fingerprint and security > Lock mobile phone.

If you set mobile phone locking, you can use your phone by unlocking after turning on the phone. You cannot make a call or receive a message until you unlock the phone. You cannot receive a notification (e.g., alarm), either.


If you fail to unlock the screen 30 times in a row, the phone will be initialized to the factory settings. Make sure to remember your screen locking setting.

Mobile phone locking cannot be set, if screen locking is not set.
