Pin App

Sometimes, sharing photos or videos with friends or family can lead to unintended privacy violations if they accidentally access other apps or view personal message notifications on your device.

For that, Samsung‘s One UI has a “Pin App” feature, which lets users lock a single app onto the screen, preventing access to other apps and protecting notification content.

You can easily turn it on by opening Settings >> Security Privacy >> More Security Settings >> Turn on the Pin App option >> Select the Recents icon next to Home >> Select the icon above the desired application >> Select “Pin this app” option.
