Password Log-in Screen

The password log-in screen for the Z10 drives me crazy.  It is too small and if I'm trying to enter the password quickly I end up making an input error and wasting time having to re-enter the password again.  Is it possible to download a different option for the password log-in screen.  I'd rather just have the option of entering numbers and having the numbers much bigger.  Apple's log-in screen is much easier.  This seems like an easy tweak. 

 

Does the option already exist?

Re: Password Log-in Screen

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Yup...it already exists, depending on your OS level. It's called "Simple Password", and you set it on the same screen that you set your actual password for your device. If you don't see it available on that screen, then you need to update to a more recent OS level that includes it.

Good luck!
