Good Morning,

 

If you press on 'settings', 'lock screen', 'screen lock type', and select 'pin' or 'password'.

 

Feel free to let me know if this works for you.

Hello,

 

I want to put pin before the phone is booting/starting.
So if you do not provide pin phone will not boot/start at all, encryption like this:

Hey, 

@user74AHjtTYiK

I don't know if this is an option on the new models. On my S9 it's titled Secure Startup. It's located in System settings Biometrics and security. It explains that when the phone is locked and the data is encrypted we won't receive phone calls, alarms, messages etc.

There is also an option for sim card lock that I've tried. 

Best regards, 

CLF
