  3. Select the Secure Lock method.
  4. Tap on the Smart Lock option and enter your PIN, Password or the Pattern whichever you feel to be easy. Select your choice.
  5. Skip through the next page with the ‘Got it’ button.
  6. Next page, click on Trusted Face.
  7. Follow the Instructions to set up the face ID and then make the ID of your face through using the Camera of your device.
