What’s Android Lockdown Mode and how to use it?

Android Pie “Lockdown mode” is a new android protection feature that not so many users know about.  It was designed to act as a final resort to keep peeping eyes from your phone.

Once enabled it obscures any incoming notification on your lock screen and disables smart lock setting and biometrics.  Hence, preventing other people from forcing you to unlock your android phone with your fingerprint or face.


Since forcing users to enter their passcodes is illegal in most regions, this could act as a preventive measure against law enforcers with a norm of trying to pry on your data. When you enter your pattern or pin, all the other options get unblocked again.

Activate Lockdown Mode

To activate the Lockdown mode, you need to hold down the power button, then tap on the Lockdown mode.

Keep mind this is a one-time use, once you’ve entered your PIN, Password or Pattern this setting will get turned off.   Every time you need to activate the Lockdown mode, you’ll have to repeat the above process.


As you can see this is not a feature you can use frequently since you have to repeat the setup process every time you unlock your phone.  However, it comes in handy when you’re in a crowded place where they’re many prying eyes.
