How do I stop the screen on my Samsung Galaxy S7 from automatically rotating?

The Auto rotate feature uses an internal sensor to detect when you rotate your device, and it adjusts your screen accordingly. The feature is turned on by default and can be turned off and locked in Portrait mode by following the steps below:

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

  1. Swipe from the top of the screen to the bottom to open the Notification Panel.
