Basics

Lock screen

You can do a lot with a locked phone – take a photo of your squirming two-year-old, use Speech to call or text a friend, get quick summaries of important notifications, enjoy a new photo or one of your favourites – all while you keep out unwanted eyes and fingers with a password.

The following topics tell you all sorts of things about your locked phone, including the details of locking and unlocking it, how to personalise its appearance and what you can do while it's locked.
