Galaxy S6: How do I pin applications to the screen on my Samsung Galaxy S6?

Last Update Date : Apr 13. 2018

Pin Windows

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.

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

Turn On Pin Windows

1 From the Home screen, touch Apps.
