How To Use Screen Lock Settings - Sony Xperia Z Ultra

Learn how to use screen lock settings on your Sony Xperia Z Ultra. There are several ways to lock the screen on your device. For example, you can use the Face Unlock feature, which uses a picture of your face to unlock the screen. You can also set a screen unlock pattern, a number-based PIN lock, or a text-based password. It is very important that you remember your screen unlock pattern, PIN or password. If you forget this information, it may not be possible to restore important data such as contacts and messages. Refer to Sony customer support for more information.

To set up the Face Unlock feature

  3. After your face is successfully captured, tap Continue.
  4. Select a backup lock method and follow the instructions in the device to complete the setup.

Note: The Face Unlock feature is less secure than a screen lock pattern, PIN, or password. Someone who looks similar to you could unlock your device.
