  • Setting this thing is very easy; just follow the step by step procedure carefully-
  • Open the app tray and move into the “Settings” option and then go to the “Security” option.
  • Tap on that, and you will find another option named “Owner’s info.” Tap that and type the owner’s info (what you want to show while the screen is locked). We prefer to mention a phone number of your family member so that if someone finds the phone, he/she can call on that number.

  • When you are done with this, tick out the options button of “Show owner’s info on lock screen” on the screen.
  • Allow automatic locking, and you just need to select the “Time” for that.

That’s all. Now tap back and enjoy.

2. Encrypt your Android phone

You can encrypt your Android phone and save all the data from being stolen. Maximum of us don’t know how to make Android phones encrypted.

What you need to do is very easy, follow the below mentioned steps to make the phone safe and secured.

If you are using an Android phone running on Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher, then your task becomes easier.

  • Open the “Settings” from the app drawer and tap on that to move quickly into the main settings menu.
  • Then follow the string to activate your security options- “Settings” > “Personal” > “Security” but the steps depend upon the OEM in use sometimes.

  • Choose the encryption option and set the PIN. To set the PIN, you may need to confirm the default PIN which is either 1111 or 9999 in maximum cases. Once you have typed the default PIN, you are all set to type the new PIN for your Android phone.

But remember one thing that without this PIN you will not be able to open the phone so, set something you can remember easily but tough to guess for others.

Stay in touch and inform us if you are facing any problem in any steps of the above. Make your Android phone smarter and be a smart user. Stay tuned.

That’s why it’s important to unroot the device before placing the ad for selling the same. Now the question comes, how to unroot an Android device especially when you are willing to sell the device.

Precheck- Whether your device is compatible or not

To answer this frequently asked question, we want to start with the first step of unrooting a device- know whether your device can be unrooted or not.

We will use an app to restore all the previous functionalities as it came wrapped for the first time. The name of the app is “SuperSU Unrooting.” To be compatible with this process your device must run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher. Otherwise, it won’t support the entire process of unrooting.

  • You must have the most updated unroot app in order to unroot the device otherwise some problems may come in between.

Now that you have aware about the whole thing let’s initiate with the step one.

Step 2: Install the app with a single tap. Once it’s installed, go to the app drawer of your device and find out the app.

Step 3: Tap on the app and start unrooting. Then it will ask for granting root access. You will notice some more tabs with few more specific settings. Tapping on those options you will see the full option list of “rooting.”

Step 4: There is an option named “full unroot”. Tap on that and you have granted permission for unrooting the device fully.

Wait a while and let the system complete the procedures. You may have to wait longer if you have the SD card in your device. Don’t worry every data will be intact.

Step 5: Once the process is completed, the SuperSU will close automatically and you will be asked to reboot the device. Just follow the order and reboot the device.

This will provide real time tracking of the person. Only one condition is there, you have to make sure that the person you want to add into tracking has an Android phone! That’s all.

The reliable app which makes this thing possible is “Trusted Contacts.” This is not a spying app, you better can call it a rescue app because if your children are going to any summer camp, you can have an eye on them.

Another best point of this app is that if someone requests your location and if you don’t deny the request within five minutes, it will automatically send the locations to your added contacts.

That’s why it’s’ important to grant the permission for precision location detection when the request is prompted up. The developer of this app, Google assured that the data of your frequent locations are kept and encrypted privately into the app, and it always shows your précised current location along with an accurate Google map of your recent location changes.

Now that you have understand that it works on GPS activities and your trusted contacts, you will have to grant permissions to those people who trust most to track you and if you are in such situation that you can’t pick your phone, it will send your location after every five minutes of every request sent by your added contacts.

If you are sending any SOS then your contacts don’t need to have the app installed on their phones. They don’t even have to have a Google account also!

Here is How you add Contact to the App

It’s very simple to add contacts to this app, let’s know how to insert the contacts easily-

Android Night Mode- Everything You Need to Know to Turn it ON

Similar to the full night mode feature Apple unveiled in iOS 9.3, and Blue Shade which Amazon rolled out in summer 2015 on its Fire tablets, Android has its Night Mode which is supposed to limit the blue light emitted from the displays of devices. Unfortunately, while the setting was on the developer previews of Android Nougat, it isn’t in the final consumer release. Don’t be anxious, though, we’ll demonstrate how to permit Night Mode in Android Nougat.

How to Allow Night Function in Android Nougat: Preventing the blues from entering into your eyes

The Recent medical research appears to claim that the blue light emitted by the smartphone and tablet shows can have an adverse effect on rest habits. These wavelengths are thought to stimulate elements of the mind that control alertness, and may even convince our anatomies that it is still day time. The upshot of the is that making use of your smartphone, tablet, PC or TV in the late evening could make it harder that you can get to sleep.

Android 7.0 features more number of red wavelengths than the blues

The new Night mode setting in Android 7.0 Nougat addresses this by diminishing the blue light on your display, increasing instead the warmer reds to reduce disruptions to your well balanced circadian rhythm. It isn’t an assured solution. The NHS lists consuming coffee or tea, alcohol consumption or smoking as other potential explanations why you might battle to nod off when you finally hit your back on the bed.

How to permit Night Function in Android Nougat: Adding the feature to make Android night mode friendly

In case your Android mobile phone is working the most recent version of the operating-system, which is 7.0 Nougat, then perusing the Settings menu will leave you with a profound insufficient Night Mode. We’ve seen reports of men and women who upgraded from the Developer Betas actually seeing the feature listed automatically, but also for many of us are waiting for official release for the users.

For this workaround to reach your goals, you’ll first need to permit the Developer version on your device. Now move to the settings menu and scroll to the underneath of the list where you will get the About Phone section. Touch this then scroll to the underneath of another list until you find Build Number. Touch this repeatedly, it requires about seven or eight taps, and you will be informed that the developer version has been triggered. Now you’re prepared to proceed.

Accessing Night Setting involves downloading a tiny Android app from the Android Play Store that unlocks the feature. There are many available to choose from.

You’ll be offered a mainly empty screen instructing someone to Enable System UI Tuner. To get this done swipe down from the very best of the display to gain access to the Options menu, then long press on the Configurations/Gear icon until you start to see the message ‘Congratulations! System UI Tuner has been added to Settings’. Now when you scroll right down to underneath of the Adjustments menu, you will get System UI Trainer right above the about the phone option.

That’s all for today, Keep informing us if you are facing any problem even if you are using the latest Android OS- Nougat.
