How To Setup SIM Lock In iPhone

[Simple Steps To Secure Your Phone]

The iPhone comes with various types of security features. These features are put in place to make sure that your phone is impervious to outside tampering.

Most of these features are related to the software of the phone. However, there is one feature that lets you secure the hardware as well. This feature is known as a SIM Lock and it lets you secure your SIM Card with a passcode.

This way, even if your phone is unlocked somehow, the person using it still cannot make or receive any calls from your number. While this doesn’t prevent them from replacing your SIM, it still however prevents it from being used for potentially illegal purposes.

To activate this feature, follow these steps:

  1. Open “Settings” and go to the “Phone” section.
  2. Open “Phone” and go to “SIM PIN”.
  3. Open “SIM PIN” and toggle to activate it.
  4. If you SIM is locked to a particular carrier, you will need to enter their default password before you can change the PIN.
  5. If you are not sure about the default PIN, contact your carrier.
  6. Once you do enter the passcode, you can then set a new PIN for your SIM.
  7. Once set, you phone will ask you for the SIM PIN every time you start your phone.
  8. Make sure you enter the correct PIN, as 3 wrong attempts will render your SIM useless.

With these easy steps, you will be able to lock the SIM of your iPhone for a more secure user experience. Have fun.
