    Password lock is the reference in this thread.

    There is no native api for initialization of "password lock"

    BlackBerry offers no Native "password lock" button / app LIKE BlackBerry OS 7.1 and before (When passwords were enabled a new button / app was available to "password lock" the device instantly . See attatched photo reference bottom left app.)


    Seriously still NO way to easily lock your blackberry 10 device?-img_20150726_172545.png

    Yes and for some it is too time consuming to hold the top button and press the lock button which would password lock the phone. Which to me is a bit absurd.

    No no no no. That doesn't solve his problems. Yes plural. You have to read the whole thread and pay close attention to the real issue here. Look at all of the phones he's claimed to use. Obviously he can't make a decision so he comes here to complain about a problem that, frankly, no one else in the world has. Probably has similar issues with all the other phones, too, but it's just our turn be subjected to his incomprehensible rant. Either that or he has more money than sense. Take your pick.

    I would like this feature. It should come. It is a basic feature. I don't mind not having it yet but I would still like to have it and it should be implemented.

    I would like it so that after hitting the lock icon the screen would go black immediately rather than show the lock screen for a bit. I've taken it out of my pocket after a while and somehow I've gone through the 5 attempts at the picture password and now have to enter the number password.

    After tapping the lock icon, press the power button at the top of the phone - it will immediately go dark.

    So that makes 3 things to do? Gasp! That might take all of, what? 1.2 seconds? Sorry, that's way too long. I can't be bothered. I'm way too busy. It's a huge problem. We ought to boycott BlackBerry. Let's all go to iPhone or android. Because they can do all of that in 1.1 seconds. That's much more secure! Someone might see the porn I've been looking at when the boss calls and I have to lock my phone immediately if not sooner. Oh, and I'm required by law to leave it on the table.

    Interestingly enough I have never felt the need to use a password on my phone, even the pin that comes on the sim card was the first thing I disabled and in 17 years it has never been an issue for me. Guess I'm just one of the lucky ones.

    Why Blackberry? Because I can!

    After reviewing your responses in this thread, I feel sorry for you as you can't see the point and couldn't understand others. Good luck.

    "No no no no. That doesn't solve his problems. Yes plural. You have to read the whole thread and pay close attention to the real issue here. Look at all of the phones he's claimed to use."
    >> Easy to proof but I won't waste my time to do that. Not worth it to show u.

    " Obviously he can't make a decision so he comes here to complain about a problem that, frankly, no one else in the world has."
    >> Can't you see how many people here want this feature?

    >> You don't need to reply this thread btw as you contribute nothing in this thread so far but making me feel uncomfortable.

    Obviously, many people would like to have this feature and, after people complaint online for over at least two years, Blackberry still don't want to have this feature.

    Password lock your device is very important if you want to protect your data. If you use your Blackberry for work, it's required to have a password lock. Blackberry aim on enterprise side, and should pay more attention to solve security issue, including how to lock / unlock your device.

    Even Crackberry had an article saying password lock your device is important.

    Any yes, in those responses to the article some people started requesting using the top lock/power button to password lock the device immediately.

    Some also posted this request on Blackberry forum. Even the thread marked solved, but the issue actually remain unsolved.

    See it as a request or suggestion feature. It would be better to keep it open to let more people aware about this. Hope Blackberry can have this option.

    Here's one reason this might be a nice feature. The power button on the top of the phone is mechanical and subject to failure. The screen icon would not be. The power button on my 2 1\2 year old Z10 is becoming finicky. I've used the button constantly to lock my phone since I purchased it, which in 30 months is literally thousands of pushes, so the fact that it is a beginning to fail would have been alleviated with a lock icon.

    Physical keyboard owners can password lock the phone by holding K and all BlackBerry 10 phones by holding top button then choosing lock.

    1 to 1 1/2 seconds at most is not a serious issue, security or otherwise.

    That's all fine and dandy for physical keyboard BlackBerry phones.

    Let me ask this. Once you hold the "K" key, is there a "lock" on the screen that you have to hit to confirm? Or does it immediately password lock the phone (after the momentary press of the "K", of course) with no further input?

    I don't know, having only the full touch BlackBerry. I just want to be sure I understand the process provided by both phone types.

    No button to confirm with the K press on physical keyboard phones. This method takes about half of a second. Keyboard shortcuts are customizable though so I personally changed mine to L, for Lock.

    The 1 1/2 second I refer to is for the top button hold and press lock.

    I admit physical keyboard BlackBerry 10 phones have an advantage, but I don't think anyone's day, meeting, or life event will be ruined or impacted by taking 1.5 seconds to password lock their phone.

    Immediate lock, no further input is required.

    Edit: I personally wish this thread would have remained closed. This is a non issue and only a preference problem of a minority of users.

    So therein lies a difference. What if you were suddenly faced with having to take the extra step with a confirmation click on the screen?

    You may think it's not a big deal, but altering a habit can be frustrating once you are faced with having to deal with it.

    I'll bet there would be a lot more users complaining... "why can't I just hold the K button and be done with it?".

    I've said that I personally don't use a password, but I do understand the OP's wish. I've seen this request on these forums before. It may not come up every day, but it probably has more support as a requested feature than you think.

    And, it would be a nice feature. Why dump all over people who would want this just because YOU think it's worthless. There are a lot of features requested of BlackBerry all the time that I wouldn't personally use, but I don't belittle others who wish for them.

    Agree, it's not really productive at this point. It is already explained in here how to lock for physical keyboard and all touch BlackBerry 10 phones, both sides are repeating the same points, and OP was satisfied with the first reply to the thread.

    Wrong. Theoretically it may take 1 or 2 seconds to password lock the device, but in real world it will take over 3 seconds at least...

    Try it yourself. You're not always put your finger on the lock button and fully ready to lock your device. Most of the time you are with an app or doing something, you will have to move your hand up from the center of the screen and press and hold it for a while (don't say only hold it 0.5 seconds, in real world you won't try to time that, you will keep holding it until you see the lock icon shown up), then you move your hand back to the screen again and press the lock icon....The real problem is: it requires your attention to password lock your device instead of just a simple click on the button.

    Btw, I am not satisfied with the K key solution as you claimed I do. Although the K key can lock your device, you need to swipe up / exit from app and return to your home screen first. If not, the K key won't work. Why argue so much on this? A simple option in setting will sure make everyone happy.

    Love you man. At least I can lock my Passport immediately now although I still prefer pressing the power button once to lock the device since the K key is very small.

    Thanks for the tip again.
    This made it seem as though you were satisfied...it's a press of one button to password lock the device

    Would it be preferable to have the top button immediately password lock the device? Perhaps, but it is not the serious issue a few posters in here are claiming

    Well, I figure this will be the last time replying/checking this thread. Getting a bit out of the hand with some comments.

    I just want to back up OP one more time regarding the feature he's looking for. Personally, I believe the feature he's looking for makes total sense. This "1-3 second" discussion seems to have gotten away from the original point. And OP, saying 3 seconds is too long is not helping our case. Simply put, we want a single click solution to locking our phones. Done. Quite frankly, as I mentioned before, the best solution would be to have a option to require a password as soon as the screen is locked. The current shortest is 1 min. Just add one more line "as soon as screen is locked", and we're golden. There's no sense getting into hypotheticals about leaving your phone at your desk, or running out to emergencies, or anything like that.

    I'd love to get a one-click solution for locking my phone. Regardless of my reasons. Hopefully comes in a future update. If it doesn't, not the end of the world.
