Firstly, if you don't know how to configure a lock screen, go to Settings + Lock Screen + Screen Lock. Choose "Pattern (Medium Security)" to begin.
Basic rules to a unique pattern:
1. It has to be symmetrical in some way.
2. It resembles some symbol.
3. You need to connect at least 4 dots, but not all dots are necessarily connected. For math nerds, that leaves us with a (9! + (9P8) + (9P7) + (9P6) + (9P5) + (9P4)) possible combinations of pattern, which is 985824 possible combinations. Imagine how creative we can be utilizing those possibilities!
4. Rules are made to be broken.
To simplify this tutorial, each dot is labelled with numbers:
So when I say 74269 or 96247, it will look like:
Are you ready? Let's begin to explore some fantastic pattern.
The basic premise is putting your initial to your lock screen. While this might be easily guessed and not unique, it could settle your identity to your lock screen. Some of the letters that can be put into the lock screen are M (7415369), N (7415963), S (321456987), R (74123659), T (85213) and G (321478965).
8546, 2546, 4528, or 6528.

The Impossible 3-Ends
This pattern is called that way because it is somehow impossible to make 3 ends in one line, but the image shows you that it's actually possible. Plus it is also beautifully symmetrical! I proudly present the code for you: 854693217 or 856471239.
The Impossible 4-Ends
Now let's move on to more complex ones.

The Milky Way
That's all I have to say tonight.
