Most Android users in Europe they left their phone with someone else sometimes. Whether it’s making a call or using an app on the device, it’s not uncommon for someone else to be accessing or using your mobile at some point. However, when you loan out your device, you don’t want the other person to walk in where they shouldn’t.
If you want to prevent that person from opening your gallery or reading your messages in messaging apps, Android gives us several options. Not only blocking apps with a fingerprint, but we can also use guest mode, which will allow that person to use the mobile from a guest account.
What is and how to use the fixed screen in Android
Find out what the fixed screen is on Android and the steps to activate this feature which prevents someone from chatting on your phone without your permission.
Guest mode on Android
This guest mode is present in many brands of Android mobiles, although some such as Samsung do not have this function. This mode will allow you to open a guest account, which will allow someone else to use your smartphone. When using this guest account, the other person will not have access to your files or documents, thus preventing him from going to see something that you don’t want him to see.
The other person will be able to use applications on the device, but without accessing your data. If you need to browse or use a specific app, you can do so from this account. Nothing that person does will be recorded on the phone. Once your session is over, you can return to your normal account and use your mobile again. To create a guest account, you need to follow these steps (they may vary from layer to layer).
- Open the phone settings.
- Go to Users and Accounts (in some layers it is in the system).
- Access users.
- Click Add guest.
- Give it a name.
- Wait for this account to be created.
- Use this account when someone else wants to use the phone.
- To exit this account, display the quick settings panel and click on the top avatar.
- Select the account to use.
This person can thus use this Android mobile, without using their Google account, for example. If you leave your phone with different people, you can create multiple guest accounts from the settings, so that these people can use the device when they need to or leave it with them.
