We love to play with our Android device all the time as it has all the wonderful apps to kill the boredom. Often people use it for social networking, clicking family or personal pictures, saving financial information, and many other things. All these data are private and we will want it to be private.
We cannot tie our Android device around our neck to protect it from our friends or colleagues. The ultimate solution to this situation is to set up and use the Guest Mode on the device when we are about to hand it over to someone else. In case you aren’t familiar with the process, then just refer this simple guide and follow instructions.
How to set up and use Guest mode on Android device:
Step #1. Unlock your device and swipe down on the main screen to bring up the Notification drawer.
Step #2. At the top-right corner, you’ll notice the user icon; tap on it.
Step #3. On the next screen, you’ll see three more icons. One will be your user name that you used while setting up the device, another will be “Guest” and last will be “Add user”. We will have to tap on “Guest“.
Step #4. Doing that will directly switch your device to Guest mode. In Guest mode, the person using the device will not be able to see any of your data, apps, multimedia, contacts, and web history.
Alternatively, you can also add a new user by tapping on “Add user” at step #3. In addition, you can also decide whether the new user can make calls and SMS or not. It is highly advisable to use the Guest mode feature on your Android device if you have some confidential data on it.
