How do I activate the camera from the lock screen?

Last Update Date : Apr 23. 2018



You can do this if you first set the camera widget up in the lock screen.

Please set the camera widget on the hold screen after checking the Multiple widgets. And then you can use immediately the camera on the hold screen.

Swipe the default lock screen from right to left to open Camera (or Widgets) when in the lock screen
