Manage Notifications on the Lock Screen
We know you're busy. Sometimes you don't have time to unlock your phone to open and dismiss all those notifications. The good news is all it takes to manage your notifications is a quick swipe! With the Oreo update, you can also snooze or change the opacity of notifications on the lock screen.
• Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
• Some features and settings are only available on Oreo updated phones.
Lock Screen Notifications
You can open or dismiss notifications right from the lock screen of your phone. Because, let’s be honest, some notifications are just meant to be dismissed. To dismiss a notification from the lock screen, swipe the notification to the left or right. To open a notification from the lock screen, touch the desired notification. Swipe on the screen to unlock the lock screen.
Note: If you have a screen lock set up, you will need to enter your credentials to view the notification.
Clock and FaceWidgets
Get quick access to the time, schedules, alarms and even contact information right from the lock screen. From Settings, search for and select Clock and FaceWidgets.
Check out all the available options:
Clock style: Set the type and color for the clock on the Lock screen and Always On Display.
Roaming clock: You can set your home time zone. Both local and your home time zones will be displayed when you are roaming.
FaceWidgets: You can set the Lock screen and Always On Display to display the Music controller, Today’s schedule, and the Next Alarm.
Contact information: You can add your contact information and it will be displayed on the Lock screen.
Just like your alarm clock at 6 a.m., hit "snooze" on your notifications. To snooze a notification from the Lock screen, swipe the desired notification slightly to the left or right. If you swipe too fast or too far, you might miss the icons. Touch Snooze notification, select the desired time to snooze, and then touch SAVE. Ahh, peace and quiet.
Lock Screen Notifications Setting
You can customize the way notifications look on the Lock screen. From Settings, touch Lock screen and security > Notifications. Explore the available settings and customize to your liking. You can even adjust the transparency!
