If you work for the UUA you’ve recently received an email explaining that your phone (or tablet) will need a PIN enabled in order to access UUA email. Here is how to set that up for an iOS based device, like an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.

  • First click on the Settings icon.
  • Choose General.
  • Press Passcode Lock.
  • Press Turn Passcode On.
  • Enter a 4 digit PIN (twice). Note: Avoid the year of your birth, and PINs such as 1111. They are very easy to guess.
  • You’ll probably want to choose Require Passcode and decide how long you want the phone to be idle before it asks for your password (I’d recommend somewhere between 1 and 5 minutes).

The next time you unlock your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, it will ask for your PIN.

If you are having trouble setting a PIN or have a question don’t hesitate to ask: helpdesk @ uua.org
