    Unable to enable screen lock in android

    I would like to enable screen lock in my android device for the prevention of unauthorized access to my android device. But i was disappointed since the screen lock option has got stuck and nothing is functioning in my phone now. I tried to restart the phone and again did the same, but still the same problem. How this issue can be fixed?

    Hope this would help..

    Go to Settings –> Location & Security –> Setup Screen lock

    you will now get 3 options in which way you want to set it up,
    a. Through Pattern
    b. Through Pin
    c. Through Password

    see which ever method suits you..
    although Security through Pattern is the popular one.. make any patter you want.. and remember it..

    Hello

    It seems you know how to enable screen lock. so it might be a software problem which may get better with a factory reset else you can go to a suatomer care center they will install the software version of android again.

    I think it will work this time. No others solution friend.

    Hope this helps thanks

    Hi,
    If you are using Android v4 or higher then you can unlock the screen by pulling down the status bar and then press the "Settings" icon where you will be able to change the lock screen option by entering into "Security" option. If you are in any version lower then reboot the phone and wait for it to boot up remember that not leave the phone ideal keep the screen awake so that the phone gets booted up into your home screen instead of a lock screen once it is booted up change the Lock screen settings in Security under Settings application.
    Hope this Helps.

    Re: Unable to enable screen lock in android

    Hello friend,
    There may be some software regarding issue to must have to reset your phone and then try again.

    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.

    Regards!
