Posted by RecomHub on January 8, 2019

We all have photographs that perhaps we wouldn’t like other people to see without our permission – but if someone has your phone and knows the lock code (if you even set one), then that person can see everything you have! The good news is that on your Samsung Galaxy J7 you can easily use “Private Mode” to keep your personal photos private. You don’t need to download any extra apps or pay for any services; this is a built-in feature of your phone. In this article I will show you how to activate Private Mode and how to put your private information into that mode.

  2. From the list of options, select Private Mode.
  3. After you enter Private Mode for the first time, a quick walkthrough will be given and you’ll need to enter a pin code. (The code will be required every time you enter Private Mode, so don’t forget it!)
