Hello Rodney!
Here are some steps to set-up your Android lock-screen password:

1. Browse through the 'Settings" of your Android smartphone.
2. Look for the "Security" tab and tap that tab.
3. Choose "Screen Lock" after that, choose "Password".
4. Input your desired password. (REMEMBER: Do not forget your password. Better write it in notebook.) Then tap "Continue". On the next prompt, you need to confirm your password so, just input/type the SAME password.
5. Then tap "OK". You have now a password lock-screen.

Great answer to the question!

To the writer of the topic, I would always recommend setting up a lock when you buy a new phone and use it for the first time. Today's phones should ask for your PIN first and then immediatly ask you if you want to set up another lock (aside from your PIN), followed by all the steps you need to take in order to set one up.
