What is screen pinning and how do I use it?


Screen pinning

You can enable your device to only show a certain app's screen using screen pinning.

Screen pinning can be useful if you want to play a game without accidently minimizing the app if you touch the Home button.

You can set up a pattern, PIN, or password required to unpin the screen.


Turn on screen pinning

  1. Go to Settings > Security & Location > Screen pinning.
  2. Turn screen pinning on.
  3. Ask for PIN before unpinning is turned on for your security. If you do not want to require a PIN to access your other phone screens, turn this option off.
