Even though Android phones are fairly secure, there are always settings you can tweak to make your device more secure from prying eyes.
To improve your mental health, try changing these three settings.
Set your device to auto-sleep
If you’re concerned about leaving your phone unlocked in public, make sure it locks quickly when not in use.
You should be able to find a “Sleep option” in your display settings.
When you stop clicking on your Android device, you can set the amount of time it takes for it to lock.
Try setting it to 15 or 30 seconds.
Silence your notifications
You can turn off your lock screen notifications.
Open Settings and go to “Notification Settings”.
You can choose whether or not your notifications should be displayed when your phone is unlocked.
Remember that turning off notifications may result in you missing messages from friends.
