How To Add Owner Info To The Lock Screen Of Your Android Device [Tip]


If you’re a forgetful smartphone owner who likes to leave their device in cabs and coffee shops, then why not make it easier for people to return your handset to you by adding your contact details to the lock screen? It’s quick and easy to do, and it’s a feature that built right into Android, so you don’t even need a third-party app.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Open up the Settings app on your Android device and tap ‘Security’
  2. Tap ‘Show owner info on lock screen’
  3. Use the text box to enter the information you wish to display on your device when it’s locked

You can now exit out of the Settings app and lock your device, and you should see your information on the lock screen — right beneath the time and date.
