    Hi everyone,
    This may be a silly question but is it possible to lock a blackberry classic and have it ask for a password to unlock the screen? I tried activating device password in the settings but it never asks for a password when waking up the phone.

    I really want a classic but if it won't password protect from the lockscreen, that's a deal breaker (I have very nosy friends)

    Press and hold power button.

    Also, on the same screen, you can decrease the lock time to minimum.

    If you are already set device password and time duration the device will be locked automatically moreover you could also press and hold K for manual lock

    I've held the k button to lock it but it never prompts for a password to unlock it. I set it to five minutes and doesn't prompt for a password well over five minutes later

    Does it react the same when you lower the time?

    Yes it was at 30 minutes. I waited 30 minutes and it didn't ask for a password. Then I tried 5 minutes and it didn't ask for a password.

    Set it to 1 minute. If it doesn't work, reload the os. Then set it 1 minute (so you won't have to wait that long) and try again.
