Manage Notifications on the Lock Screen of Galaxy Tab E

Always on the go? You don’t even have to unlock your tablet to open or dismiss notifications. Manage your notifications with just a quick swipe. This way, you can check out what’s happening at a moment’s notice. You can also customize what is displayed on the lock screen.

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

Lock Screen Notifications

You can open or dismiss notifications right from the lock screen of your tablet. Because, let’s be honest, some notifications are just meant to be dismissed.

  1. To dismiss a notification from the lock screen, swipe the notification to the left or right.

  2. To open a notification from the lock screen, touch the desired notification and then swipe to unlock the screen.

    Note: If you have a screen lock set up, you will need to enter your credentials to view the notification. 

Information and FaceWidgets

Get quick access to the time, schedules, alarms and even contact information right from the lock screen. Great for busy schedules. It couldn’t be easier to set up:

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.

  2. Touch Search, and then search for and select Information and FaceWidgets.

  3. The following settings are available:

    • 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.
