Set SIM PIN on Firefox OS

You can add a SIM PIN to prevent access to your SIM card. When enabled, any device containing the SIM card will request you to enter the PIN on startup.

Setting the SIM PIN

In order to be able to set the SIM PIN it would have to be done in the settings section of the phone.

  1. Tap on settings icon to open the Settings.
  2. Scroll down to Privacy & Security, and tap on SIM security.
    SIM Security List Item. sim lock
  3. To turn on the SIM PIN, tap the switch to toggle it on.
    SIM PIN Switch
    The blue color bt icon means that the PIN is activated.
  4. You will then be asked to create a 4-6 digit SIM PIN.
Write down your PIN and hide it in a safe place. Without this PIN, you will no longer be able to place calls or send messages using your SIM card.

Changing the PIN

To change the SIM PIN, you would have to go the same place in your settings but do the following instead:

  1. Tap the Change PIN button.
    Change PIN button
  2. Enter a new SIM PIN.
The SIM PIN is not the same as the passcode used to unlock your device. See Set Screen Lock on Firefox OS for more information.
