Sprint LG G2 owners who have been waiting for the company’s Knock Code security feature should finally start seeing it today.

LG’s Knock Code awakens the device with a customized pattern of "knocks" or taps on the screen. Some find it a faster method for unlocking a phone in comparison to fumbling for a power button or typing in a passcode.

While the Knock Code comes preinstalled on LG's latest flagship device, the LG G3, it has been slowly rolling out to the variants of the previous-generation G2. An update brought the Knock Code to T-Mobile earlier this month and the AT&T version in June. Verizon pushed out the update in April.

According to LG, the Knock Code creates 86,367 different possible combinations. Users can create a pattern of anywhere from two to eight points on the screen.

While the update is beginning its rollout today, it may take a day or two before it hits your device. Be on the lookout for an update dubbed "ZVD."
