Lock or unlock your smartphone

You can lock the screen to avoid pressing it or making calls accidentally and, if you have set a BlackBerry® smartphone password, you can also lock your smartphone with a password.

Depending on how you or your administrator set your password options, if you don't use your smartphone for a certain period of time, your smartphone might lock with a password automatically.

Do one of the following:
  • To lock the screen, press the Lock key on the top of your smartphone.
  • To unlock the screen, press the Lock key again.
  • To lock your smartphone with a password, on the home screen or in a folder, click the Password Lock icon.
  • To unlock your smartphone, enter your password. Press the Enter key on the keyboard.
