Hi. I have just purchased the Nokia 6. I do not want to use Fingerprint to unlock the screen as I have very dry hands and I have a screen protector. I want to use a pin to unlock the screen. Anyone know how to do this please?
I have noted the Sim Card lock but I think this is something different. All I want to do is set a pin to unlock the
screen rather than a fingerprint. Can
anyone help please?
Hi Fatboyz. Thanks for your response but the problem I have is finding the PIN for the Screen Lock rather than the sim or device. What I previously found was a PIN referring to “a PIN before start up. Until device starts up, it can’t receive calls, messages, including alarms.” This suggests something different to me, a PIN for the device start up after powering down, rather than a PIN for a Screen Lock. Or am I mistaken? Do I have this wrong?
In trying to locate a PIN Screenlock, I found this message: “Because you have turned on an accessibility service your device wont use your screen lock to enhance data encryption.” Gordon Bennet what on earth does that mean?
I have McAfee on the phone as I did with my previous Samsung
J5 and had no problem with a PIN Screen Lock usage.
So can anyone shed light on the reference to the “PIN before start up” please? I don’t think this refers to a PIN Screen Lock but something different.
What does accessibility service mean that I seem to have turned on which
possibly prevents a PIN Screen Lock?
Surely not McAfee? The very annoying Google Assistant?? I do
appreciate any suggestions to finding a PIN for the Screen Lock.
