Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
This is in order to stop other people making purchases under your account, so you do not incur costs.
To confirm, is this the screen lock that stops you from actually using the Kindle? Or the request for a password ***** you try to make a purchase?
