Samsung Lock Screen Type

A common method of securing smartphones before the introduction of biometrics authentication is through a password. Compared to other lock screen types, password offers a higher level of security for as long as the standard password requirements are met. A password is also needed when adding a fingerprint for biometrics security.

The process of adding a password in Android smartphones is fairly simple. But the actual steps vary between devices.
