Outlook: Mobile Device Setup - Android Password Lock


If you use Android to access sensitive data, such as your email or calendar, you should consider setting an unlock pattern. Doing so protects your data in case an untrustworthy person gets a hold of your device (for example, if it is lost or stolen).

Set an Unlock Pattern in Android

To set an unlock pattern in Android, do the following:

  1. Press Settings > Location & security > Set unlock pattern.
  2. Read the on-screen instructions which describe how to set an unlock pattern.
  3. Press Next.
  4. Watch the example which shows how to set an unlock pattern.
  5. Press Next.
  6. Using your finger, draw an unlock pattern that you will remember.
  7. Press Continue.
  8. Draw the same unlock pattern again.
  9. Press Confirm.

Your device now requires your unlock pattern to unlock it. You do not have to provide your unlock pattern to answer calls or make emergency calls. You must use your unlock pattern to make normal calls.
