Whether you’re making a call or using an app on your device, it’s not uncommon for someone else to access or use your smartphone.
Most Android users borrow, one way or another, your phones to someone else on some occasion. Whether you’re making a call or using an app on your device, it’s not uncommon for someone else to access or use your smartphone. However, when we give up our device, we don’t want the other person to see what they shouldn’t. If you want to prevent that person from opening the gallery or reading the messages in messaging apps, the Android offers several options. not only can lock fingerprint application, but we can also use the guest mode, also known as Guest Mode, which will allow that person to use the smartphone with a guest account.
Guest mode on Android
This guest mode is present on many Android smartphone brands, although some, such as Samsung, do not have this function. What this mode does is open a guest account, which will allow someone else to use the smartphone. with this guest account, the other person will not have access to files or documents. The other person can use applications on the device, but without accessing the data. Nothing that person does will be stored on the phone. Once the session ends, they can return to their normal account and use their smartphone again.
To create a guest account, you must follow these steps (they may vary between brands).
- Open phone settings.
- Go to users and accounts (in some skins, it’s in the System).
- Go to users.
- Click Add Guest.
- Give this account a name. Wait for the account to be created.
- Use this account when someone else wants to use the phone.
- To log out of this account, go to the quick settings panel and click on the top avatar. Select the account to be used.
This can thus use the Android smartphone, without using your Google account, for example. They can create multiple guest accounts from the settings so that these people can use the device when they need to.
