How to Set up Guest Mode on your LG G3

Your LG G3 might be a temptation for those around you, but we are sure that the idea of handing over your phone is far from tempting. Don’t worry, if you are forced not to refuse such a request, then be sure that LG has thought of a solution for you. As you have already seen from the title, we are talking about its special Guest Mode which lets someone else use your phone without getting full access to your photos, videos, files and other private data. So, what do you say? Do you want to set up this Guest Mode on your LG G3?

The feature offers you the chance to set a specific unlock pattern and even to select what applications are going to be available in this mode. We are basically referring to a completely separate account on your LG G3 that can be accessed using a special pin code or password (a different one from the normal code that you use every day), letting the new person to use only specific apps and to access limited settings as well.

This functionality can be useful if you have sensitive information on your handset, if you don’t want your child to mess something up or if you simply want your personal life to remain personal. There are your notes, your photos and so on and it’s your decision to remain like that!

    Unfortunately the Guest Mode no longer allows you to set which apps and a knock code the guest can use since the Lollipop update.
