You Android device might be really near and dear to your heart, and so is mine. Imagine a scenario wherein your device gets lost, and it is password protected. Even if a good guy gets hold of your device, there isn’t any way he could bypass your lockscreen, and try to contact someone on your contact list. This is where the dilemma comes in.
If you do not password protect your device, then chances are your data is at risk, but it might even act as a hindrance in your way. The simplest way is to set up owner info on your lockscreen. Believe me, this feature has been around buried down in your device’s settings for a long time.
Following are steps by which you can enable Owner Info on your lockscreen.
- Hop into Settings, either by using the status bar shortcut, or going the complicated way into the App Drawer.
- If you are using Stock Android, then scroll down to find an option called ‘Security‘. Or, if you happen to use a Custom ROM like I do, then scroll down to find an option named ‘Lockscreen‘.
- Scroll down even more while in the sub-settings menu, to find something called ‘Owner Info‘, and tap on it.
- Here you will find a small textbox, enabling you to write in whatever you like.
- Once you enter your details, just head over to home, and try locking and unlocking your Android device.
Nice! You now have successfully prevented your phone from hazards, and if something were to happen to your precious device, then people would have no problem contacting your loved ones, to return your other loved one.
