  • Tap "Turn Passcode On" and enter your desired password
    • You will be prompted for this password again for confirmation

 

If you do have a current passcode on your device:

  • Go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock
    • You will be prompted for your current passcode
  • Slide the "Simple Passcode" option to "Off"
    • You will be prompted for your current passcode for confirmation
