Thank you for purchasing CarLock. Before starting to use the CarLock service, you’ll need to create a CarLock account and activate your new device. This step-by-step tutorial is specifically designed for Android users to make the activation process easier within the CarLock app. If you already use a CarLock device and want to add another one to your account, read the How to Add Another CarLock Device to Existing Account guide.

Before starting the activation process, you’ll need to download the CarLock app on your phone. 

To download the CarLock app:

  • Once the downloading process is complete, open the app by tapping on the CarLock icon.

Once you have the app installed, follow the steps below.

  1. Watch the demo video to check how the CarLock system works.

2. Open the CarLock app on your phone and tap on the text at the top of your screen as demonstrated below.
