Hidden Features on your Android Phone

Being able to unlock the mobile using the on-screen fingerprint reader has been a great advance. In many mobiles, they go a step further and in addition to being able to unlock the mobile in seconds just by touching the screen, we can choose the animation that will be seen when doing so. In some terminals, this option is deactivated or with a very discreet design by default. We will only have to go to the Settings and Security menu and enter the section dedicated to the fingerprint. Once inside we will see the Fingerprint Animation settings. Depending on our mobile we can choose more or fewer effects.
