    Anyone found it yet? I enjoyed Guest mode in my G2 for letting my son use my phone. Android Multi User looks like a nice replacement but I can't find it?

    Also, I used LG Backup to move a few things from my G2 to G4. Worked great except for notes in Notebook? Said it moved them but to where? I assumed quick memo plus but not to be found?

    I called LG at 800-793-8896. Good News is a human answers pretty quickly but getting an answer from said human was comical.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    I wish Duncan. It isn't there? Do I need to do something within Google to activate?

    It could be that T-Mobile may have removed the feature but i cant think of a reason why they would.

    T-Mobile pushed out an update about two weeks ago that removed it.

    Wow! Any idea why? Or was it one of those classic software updates that fixes the problem but creates others?

    Not really sure, but think it was causing battery issues when in use.

    T-Mobile hates it for some odd reason, the didn't include it not on the LG G3 neither on the LG G2 Lollipop updates and now they roved it from the LG G4 as well!

    I thought I read somewhere that it was removed from all US G4's. Just the international/Unlocked ones have that feature.

    I don't have it on the Verizon version, which doesn't surprise me. I wish it did, though.

    Like many other features removed by LG this one can be easily accessed by installing "activity launcher" app.

    Set the app to show all activities and, under "home" i think, you will find "guest mode". Make a shortcut on home screen and launch it like you launch any app. With this app you can find all hidden menus on you phone, like "knock on/off" for example

    Have you actually gotten this to work? If so, was it a Verizon LG G4? I tried the app you stated and also a similar one that I used to turn the knock code on before (called Quick Shortcut Maker) and neither one shows any entry or option for Guest mode.

    edit: Found it on my Verizon G4, not under "Home", but under something else (Settings?) and got to the "Add User" screen. However, when I try to add a user, the process fails and it crashes.
