Password protection in Samsung Galaxy Y & few other queries

Hi.
Can anyone please tell me how to password protect my files in Galaxy Y without using any 3rd party software? Also, I have noticed that when I click a picture, it is shown in the gallery but not in My Files i.e. the memory card. If I were to put the SD card in a laptop, where will the images be located? And is there any way to change the volume of sms tone?
Thanks in advance

I do not have this model.

But here I find that Settings, Security is where it is across 6 other Android devices. I'd start there.

As to the pictures, on most cards I find pictures taken with the camera under the DCIM folder just like most cameras.

No Such Option in Settings >Security

Thanks R. Proffitt. I have already checked in the Security section. There I only have options to back up my data and another similar choice, can't remember what. Nothing about setting passwords. Someone told me that you can't set password in Galaxy phones without using 3rd party software. Is that a fact?

Remember I don't have the Galaxy.

And did not check the manual. I left that to you.

There is a fine Samsung Ambassador in the CNET Samsung Forum that I suggest you ask next if your research tells you otherwise.

Just wondering. What has your research turned up?

Later today I'll check out my son's Samsung phone. It's not the Galaxy.

That's the only way to lock

a phone, via the "location and security". There are third party apps that can lock individual applications, but in terms of what's built into the phone, it's just locking the phone in general.

"without using any 3rd party software?"

In reply to: That's the only way to lock

Since the OP requested no other software, we are left to look at what locks exist.

Have you noticed that many users of cell phones, HDTVs and such "devices" are looking for features we had in the common Apple and Windows PC?

Could you lock certain apps on Windows?

Why yes I can.

I have done so for years using file ownership and permissions via NTFS.

I'm sure the same is on MacOSX.
