Lock Your iPad, iPod Touch, Or iPhone

Keep your device private. Lock your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch with a four-digit passcode.

Don't worry about data snoops. It's easy to lock your iOS device. Here's how.

First set up the code to lock your iOS device. Go to Settings >> General. Tap on Passcode Lock.

Tap Turn Passcode On.

Enter in a four-digit numerical code--twice.

And you've got a lock code. The passcode keeps all lurkers away. Just don't forget it!

Keep it private, too.

Now your iPhone is safe from prying eyes.
