1 slide Default on most devices, and provides no protection
4-5 Face Unlock uses your facial pattern to unlock the devices, interesting concept but too many variables if someone looks like you, or the lighting around you might interfere with the camera
6-7 Pattern(6A) Use finger swipes in a organized sequence to unlock, this method provide fast access to you device while providing a basic level of security
7-8 Pin(6B) Much like a bank card with a security chip, provide a sequence of numbers to unlock the device
9-10 Password(6B) The most secure method, use any combination of letters, numbers and symbols. This is the most time consuming method of using the device
