You can set a 4-12 digit passcode to keep your screen locked when it's not in use. The passcode will be required to return to Home from Superframe, but you can still use voice commands to make and receive calls.

To set your Portal passcode:

  1. From Home on your Portal, Tap Settings.
  2. Tap the Privacy tab and then tap Passcode.
  3. Enter the 4-12 digit passcode for your device and tap the Checkmark.
  4. Re-enter your 4-12 digit passcode and tap the Checkmark to confirm your passcode.

To change your Portal passcode:

  3. Select who's making changes and log in with your Facebook account.
  4. Enter your old passcode and tap the Checkmark.
  5. Enter your new passcode, reenter the new passcode, and then tap the Checkmark to confirm your new passcode.
