Pin on start up

2017-08-26, 6:19 AM

I restarted my phone and realized that I don't have to enter my pin on start up. I searched for the past hour looking how to turn it on, but I couldn't find it. Can someone show me where it is?

Solved! See the solution

Settings-security-screen lock (gear) - it is here on my Z2 play, but not on my Z2 force.  

 

But Z2 force uses the new A/B partition and it appears uses "direct boot" - this eliminates the need for a startup pin as the files are still encrypted until you unlock.

Huh? That doesn't explin it. Maybe I don't understand.

Any time I reboot my phone I have to enter my Pattern. And the option is still there on the Z2 Force.

Settings > Security > Screen lock.

What he's saying is that you used to have an option to enter your pin early on in the process so the phone wouldnt get to the main start screen for your pin to be entered, IE 2 pins on a reboot. 

 

Now it sounds like with the new boot process your files arent un encrypted until you unlock your phone when it finishes booting up eliminating the need for the 2nd pin.

What this guy said :)  Didn't know they changed how booting worked.  I welcome the change.
