Galaxy S6 - Pin applications to the screen (SM-G920W8)

Last Update Date : Jun 14. 2019

Pin app window

You can pin an application to the screen of your device. This feature locks your device so the person using it has access to only the pinned application. Pinning an application also prevents other applications and features from causing interruptions, and it keeps you from accidentally exiting the application.

Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
