Your phone is the most personal device you have. He is almost always with you and is able to hear, see and feel everything you do. But what if you want to turn off these sensors, for example, before starting a sensitive content meeting?
While Android offers fast switching to turn off location tracking and mobile connectivity, there's no immediate option to turn off the rest of your phone's sensors, such as the camera or microphone. Fortunately, Android has a hidden setting that lets you turn them all off sensors of your phone with only one push. See exactly how it works.
Please note that this option is only available for Android 10 or later phones.
To do this, you must first enable Developer Options, a set of additional Google tools primarily for Android application developers. You do not have to worry about being allowed to do so and it will not void your phone warranty. THE Google, in its documentation, also states that this feature, in addition to the help of developers, "also gives users a way to control the sensors on their device."
To enable Developer Options, launch the “Settings” app on your Android phone, scroll down to the bottom menu and open the "About Phone" section.
Locate an option called "Build Number". Samsung Galaxy owners will find it choice in the "Software Information" section. Press repeatedly until your smartphone asks for the PIN, the motif or the lock screen password.
Go back to the main settings page and go to System> Developer Options. Samsung owners will find the "Developer Options" option at the bottom of the Settings menu.
Scroll down until you find the "Quick Settings Developer Tiles" and press the button.
Turn on "Sensors Off".
By default, Android adds "Sensors Off" as the first tile in "Quick Settings". In case you do not want it, you can move it by rearranging it frame.
When you turn on "Sensors Off", your phone turns off most of its sensors, including cameras, microphone, accelerometer and others. If an application such as the built-in camera program tries to access any of this information, it will either return an error or refuse to operate.
The rest of your smartphone, including Wi-Fi and the mobile network will continue to operate normally. Therefore, the "Sensors Off" option may be useful for specific scenarios or if you are just looking for a more private mobile experience telephony. With the quick setting, you can open it again with one touch.
