    I assume you're looking for it in the settings, why it would be missing I'm not sure, but have you looked in the quick settings. Use two fingers to pull down your notifications and if added try manipulating from there. If not see if you can add it by customizing your quick setting toggles. Usually the note pad and pen upper right.

    Welcome as a new member.

    That's a drastic fix for such a minor thing, but if that's what it takes....
    Thx for the tip.

    It just happened to me , slide down from the top of your phone, all your one touch icons there, you will see portrait touch that to turn auto rotate back on. Hopefully that the problem.

    After you swipe down, there is an icon that says portrait. Tap that and it will change to rotate. Who ever thought it was a good idea to change the label needs to be shot. Very confusing and not intuitive at all.

    Welcome.

    Does this persist in Safe Mode, or after a general Cached Data clear in Settings, Storage?

    I've spent the last two weeks thinking I was crazy. I was not at all seeing that as a lock portrait mode button, I was only seeing that auto rotate wasn't there. So this fixed it of course. Thank you so much.

    Dude I was just getting ready to do a hard reset until I just found your portrait setting fix. So simple yet misleading. I would have lost so much data. U saved my butt.
    Thank you!

    My S7 has just stopped auto rotating and the toggle is active in the quick settings menu (the portrait icon is not active) how do a hard reset? And will I lose anything if I do it.

    Yes, a hard reset, if by that you mean a factory reset, would wipe all personal data not backed up beforehand. Try first a Cache Partition wipe, which will not do that, but which may fix the problem.

    I've just done a restart, that's done the trick

    It was happened to me also and it made me crazy, through a lot of searching and browsing to find out the solution, walay (arabic expression), I was so really got sucked on my ignorance and foolishness hahaha, it is easy that the "portrait" icon to be selected to make it auto rotate. I never think of it as the same in printing selection as "portrait" & "landscape" only. Well, it's just an easy folks. Select "portrait" to change it in "Auto rotate".
