Manage Lock Screen Notifications on Galaxy J3 and J7 2018

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.

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.

Snooze Notification

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 DONE. Ahh, peace and quiet.

Lock Screen Settings

Get quick access to the time, schedules, alarms and even contact information right from the lock screen. From Settings, swipe to and touch Lock screen.

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.

  • Notifications: Select apps to show notifications on the Lock screen, and select whether to hide notification content and details on the Lock Screen.

  • App shortcuts: Select apps to open from the Lock screen.

Lock Screen Notifications Setting

You can customize the way notifications look on the Lock screen. From Settings, swipe to and touch Lock screen > Notifications. Explore the available settings and customize to your liking. You can even adjust the transparency!
