The phone lock feature on your LG phone prevents unauthorized users from accessing your handset. If the phone doesn't have a clam shell design, it also prevents you from accidentally pressing any buttons while your LG phone is in your pocket or bag. As long as you know the current security password, you can create a new security password for your LG phone.


Step 1

Turn on the LG phone. Press the "Menu" key.
