Setting up screen security on your Samsung Galaxy S10e

It is very important to set up screen security on your Samsung Galaxy S10e especially if you have sensitive information or files saved in it. The screen lock security is more than just to fend off unwanted users, it also enables the Factory Reset Protection (FRP) that makes the phone unusable if it’s reset without the knowledge of the original user.

In this guide, I will walk you through in setting up the screen security on your new Galaxy S10e. While you will be asked to set it up during the first boot of your device, some users may skip it and this post will help you enable it. So, continue reading as this article may be able to help you.

How to enable screen security on Galaxy S10e?

Your Galaxy S10e gives you 6 screen security options, namely: Swipe, Pattern, PIN, Password, Face and Fingerprints. The first one doesn’t actually offer security, it just literally locks the screen. Here’s how you set up the security…


  1. From the Home screen, drag down the Notification panel.
  2. Tap the Settings icon.
  3. Tap Lock screen.
  4. Tap Screen lock type.
  5. Tap PIN. (For this tutorial, we’re showing how to set up a PIN. You can select a different type of security, but steps may vary based on what you choose.)
  6. Enter your PIN. (It must be 4 digits long.)
  7. Tap Continue.
  8. Confirm your PIN.
  9. Tap OK.
  10. Select a notification preference. (Tap or slide the Hide content switch to prevent the content of emails, texts and other notifications from appearing on the Lock screen. You’ll be notified that you have a new message, but not shown what the message contains.)
  11. Tap Done.

Once the security is setup, you will be asked to enter the PIN every time the screen is unlocked. So, don’t share your screen security with anyone.
