Tighten Lockscreen Security
New in Android Pie (9.0), you can now enable your power button to temporarily tighten lockscreen security.
Unlocking with the fingerprint sensor and setting up automatic unlocking make it easier to keep your phone secure and minimize when you need to enter your PIN, pattern, or password. But sometimes you need to trade convenience for more security. You can temporarily tighten locks and prevent lock screen notifications.
Set it up
- Go to Settings > Security & Location > Lock screen preferences.
- Turn Show lockdown option on .
- Touch & hold the Power button.
- Touch Lockdown.
(Your fingerprint sensor and automatic unlock settings are disabled and notifications won’t be displayed on your lock screen.)
- To exit Lockdown, unlock your phone with your PIN, pattern, or password.
