Enable Samsung’s Blue Light Filter on your Device
Are you having trouble falling asleep? Are you using your smartphone or tablet in the late evening? Aren’t you the only one doing so, but your kids also seem to be hyperactive when playing with the tablet before bed time? More and more users notice this problem or they are having issues with eye strain due to the amount of time they spend in front of screens. It’s not that surprising when you consider our modern lifestyles with TVs, computers, smartphones, tablets and so on all around us.
The eye protection mode, as Huawei calls it, is an effective way to reduce blue light. Blue light has a negative impact on sleep as it disturbs the production of melatonin, an essential sleep hormone, so if you use a Samsung device and not a Huawei one, use the Blue light filter instead to help you sleep better at night.
You can enable Samsung’s Blue Light Filter on your device, assuming that you own a Galaxy S8, Note 8 and up device and you can even schedule to automatically turn this feature on and off. I love to set things up so that the phone’s color tones shift as bedtime approaches, so here’s how to take advantage of this Blue Light filter feature:
How to Enable Samsung’s Blue Light Filter on your Device:
- At first, give the notification shade a tug;
- Now, it’s time to tap the Gear icon;
- From there, tap into the Display menu and look for the Blue Light Filter setting;
- While there’s a simple toggle to turn it on or off directly from this menu, the real settings are found within. Go ahead and tap the text to jump in;
- You may choose the option to Turn on now: touch to enable this feature or to Turn on as scheduled: touch to set a schedule for when Blue light filter should be enabled. You can also choose Sunset to sunrise or Custom schedule;
- Also touch and drag the slider to the left or to the right to set the opacity of the filter.
And that’s really all there is to it. Do you use a light filter on your smartphone? Do you find it helps minimize the strain you place on your eyes? Let us know in the comments below.
