The security password in a Nokia 6300 lets you control settings and who has access to them. You can make certain features, such as outgoing phone calls, software updates and downloadable content, available only with a security password. The password ensures that if your phone is lost or falls into the wrong hands, no one can make calls or changes. You can change the security password from the security settings menu.
