Setting up a password on your BlackBerry helps to protect your privacy. This is useful on smartphones, considering the amount of personal information -- like e-mails -- that is easily viewable on the phones. Creating a password would mean that without the correct password, no one will be able to unlock your phone. But if you're tired of having to enter your password just to view an SMS message or set your alarm, you may want to take a break from the password-protection option.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press any key to open the "Device Is Locked" dialogue box. Click "Unlock."

  2. 2

    Type in your password in the Password field. Click down on your trackball or trackpad to enter the password.

  3. 3

    Press the "BlackBerry" menu button to open your Home screen. Click "Options."

  4. 4

    Click "Security Options," then select "General Settings."

  5. 5

    Highlight and click "Enabled" next to Password to open the drop-down menu. This is typically the first option under the General Settings title.

  6. 6

    Click "Disable" from the drop menu. Press the back arrow button and click "Save."

  7. 7

    Type your password into the Password field and exit.
