Do you have a Samsung mobile? Find out how to better protect it with “blocking mode”.
Smartphones have security measures to prevent an unauthorized person from gaining access to the private data you have stored on them, such as photographs, notes or bank details. Some of the most important are unlocking by fingerprint or face data, terminal password and SIM card PIN.
But there may be certain situations in which you need a higher level of security and for these cases the terminals of the Korean brand Samsung have a really useful feature, the “lock mode”.
Next, we will explain to you step by step how to activate this blocking mode on your Samsung mobile.
So you can activate the “lock mode” on your Samsung mobile
All the Korean firm’s terminals have a “lock mode”, a function that deactivates both fingerprint unlocking and facial recognition and deactivates the Smart Lock service and notifications on the lock screen.
Thus, when this mode is activated, if an unauthorized person tries to unlock your smartphone, they will only be able to do so by entering the PIN code or the password that you have previously configured.
Samsung has a secret feature that lets you play two audios at the same time
In order to activate “lock mode” on your Samsung smartphone, you will first need to activate it, which you can do by following these simple steps:
- Access your Samsung mobile settings
- Go to the lock screen section
- Click on Security Lock Settings option
- Enter your lock PIN or password
- Enable the Switch that appears to the right of Show lock option
Once this “lockdown mode” is activated, to activate it you just have to long press the power button to bring up the shutdown menu and click on the Lockdown mode button.
By default, Samsung phones are configured at the factory so that when you long press the power button, your virtual assistant, Bixby, is activated and not the shutdown menu of the terminal, but to change this configuration you just have to do this following :
- Enter your Samsung mobile settings
- Go to the Advanced Features section
- Click the Button Function option
- In the Press and hold active section the Menu button turns off
