Using the Blue Light Filter on my Samsung Phone

Last Update date : Oct 13. 2020

The Blue light filter decreases the amount of blue light displayed on the screen of the device. Blue light can suppress the production of melatonin (sleep-inducing hormone), so filtering it out can help you sleep better. It will also reduce digital eye strain, so your eyes won't feel so tired by the end of the day. 

Tap on of the drop down menus to follow the step-by-step instructions.

Screenshots were captured from a Galaxy Z Flip operating on Android OS version 10.0 (Q), settings and steps may vary depending on your Galaxy device and software version.
