The SIM Pin is a four-digit number that you set up to protect your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus. Depending on the current security settings, you might need the SIM Pin on different occasions. Whether it is for unlocking the device, for activating the Internet, or for adjusting other security options, it can never hurt having a SIM Pin in place.
Just the same, if you ever feel like it has been compromised or that anyone from around you, with access on your phone, might have seen you typing it and thus knows how to unlock the phone in your place, you should change it right away. That’s precisely what you are about to learn from this article.
The exact steps for changing the SIM Pin on Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ Plus:
- Go to the Home screen of the smartphone;
- Access the Settings menu;
- Navigate to the Security section;
- Select the SIM Pin Option;
- Tap on Change SIM Pin;
- Type your old SIM Pin when required;
- Insert the new SIM Pin you wish to use.
Now you can leave the settings and enjoy the ease of mind that comes from having a new SIM Pin and being the only one who knows it. Some people mind find it a bit uncomfortable having to use a Pin every time when trying to unlock the Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus.
If that’s the case, there are also other security measures that you can choose from and whatever makes you feel more comfortable should work. The key, with any of them, is that only you – and, if you insist, the persons you really trust – to have access to that information.
