1. Android Central Question's Avatar
    Had a few samsung devices and all have done the same. I use pin unlocking, what I don't like is the when you press each digit, the digit flashes up on screen. Thus anyone watching can see what I've pressed. I don't want to use biometrics as it's handy to be able to tell others, if needed, how to get information from my tab.
    Is there anyway of hiding these "adverts" of my pin for prying eyes as I tap the digits In?

    Welcome to Android Central! If you enter the PIN quickly, it should be hard to catch the digits as they fly past. Or you could use a pattern and make sure it's somewhat complex.

    I don't have any issues with people seeing my PIN on my Galaxy Tab S6 Lite Lite, but I've been accustomed to quickly entering a PIN for over 5 years now.
