How To Enable Lock Screen Widgets In Android 4.4 KitKat [Tip]
Lock screen widgets were first introduced to Android last November with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, but in Google’s latest KitKat release, they’re disabled by default. But don’t worry — they haven’t been killed off altogether; you just need to enable them again if you want to use them.
- Open up the Settings app and tap ‘Security’
- Tap ‘Enable Widgets’
- Go to your lock screen, then swipe over to the left and tap the plus symbol
- Pick the widget you’d like to add to your lock screen
