Last Update date : Jul 20. 2021

When unlocking your Galaxy phone, swiping the screen may display a picture of animals or landscape instead of a pattern or fingerprint recognition window. This is a Dynamic Lock screen provided by the Galaxy phone, and you can simply disable it at any time. Check the guide below to unlock the Dynamic Lock screen.

Step 3. Follow the on-screen instructions. 

The Dynamic Lock Screen is a service that automatically updates and displays images of animals, landscapes, etc. every two weeks on the lock screen of your Galaxy phone. You can keep things fresh with different images each time you turn on the screen instead of the same wallpaper again and again.
