What To Know About The Android Lock Screen?

In addition to the usual notifications on the Android lock screen, an individual text can also be displayed there. Imagine you lose your phone, and someone finds it. How is he supposed to know who it belongs to? If you show your contact information on the lock screen, the finder has the answer and can return the phone.

Text with an email address and phone number (or other information) can be added under Settings> Display> Screen lock display> Screen lock message or, for Samsung phones, via Settings> Lock screen> Contact information.

Deactivate The Notification Center

While the display of contact information can be helpful in an emergency, not everyone wants the notification center – keyword data protection. It is helpful because the Android smartphone does not have to be unlocked to see notifications. But some people also want to protect them from prying eyes.

Then it makes sense to deactivate the display of notifications. You can do this via Settings> Display> Lock screen> Lock screen or Settings> Lock screen> Notifications on models from Samsung. Not only can the notification center be deactivated here, but the notification style can also be selected.

Automatic Unlock

It doesn’t have to be because the Smart Lock function can be used to determine the conditions under which your smartphone remains unlocked, for example, when you are carrying it with you, or it is in a trustworthy place such as your own home.

This option is located in Settings> Security> Smart Lock. At Samsung, you choose Settings> Lock Screen> Smart Lock. Speaking of Samsung: The manufacturer also offers the option of changing the clock style of the lock screen and its color under Settings> Lock screen.

The Android lock screen according to movical can be changed and adapted very well to individual preferences with the tips presented. If that’s not enough, you can use third-party apps such as “Next Lock Screen” from Microsoft, which can be used to make additional settings.
