Android Lollipop: Quick Access From Your Lock Screen

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015 by | Filed Under: Android

If you’re using Android Lollipop, you can quickly get to several things on your phone without unlocking your lock screen.


Swipe up the phone icon to the left to instantly open your dialer app to make or receive calls.


Swipe up on the camera icon to the right to instantly open your camera.


But wait, there’s more. Swipe down from the top to get access to settings like WiFi, Location, Sound, Bluetooth and Screen Brightness instantly.


You can also tap the gear symbol to gain access to your full settings.


You’ll also reveal notifications and Google Cards.

    Did I miss something here, or does this mean anyone who picks up my Android phone can access these features from the lock screen? Maybe I read through it too quickly, but access to my full settings sounds a little risky.
