The sensors in our Android smartphones enable amazing functions like navigation, automatic screen locking, playing racing games without using on-screen buttons, and more. Our smartphones will become dumb phones without these sensors. However, these sensors can be used against us just like any other tool. Someone who hacks your smartphone will be able to capture your audio, log your keystrokes, and even activate the camera. Fortunately, Android 10 introduces a new function that lets you turn off all of these sensors with a single press. Follow along to find out how to accomplish it.
Turn Off Tracking Sensors on Android Smartphone
The option to disable all the sensors on your Android smartphone will be useful for situations where you require complete privacy. However, not everyone will require this feature. Additionally, mistakenly turning it on will be very annoying for regular users. For this reason, Google has buried this function in Android Q’s Developer Options. But it’s really simple to access if you know how.
1. On your smartphone, we must first enable Developer Options. Tap the build number seven times when in Settings -> About Phone to accomplish this. When you do this, a message stating that you are a developer will appear.
You will receive a notification that says “This functionality is already activated” if you have. No need; you are a developer already.
2. Next, press to enter System -> Developer Options. The setting may occasionally be found in the Advanced menu. Use the settings app’s search feature to look for it if you can’t find it.
3. Locate and hit the Quick settings developer tiles option by scrolling down. Enable the Sensors off toggle here.
4. Right now, locate the Sensors Off option in the Quick Settings panel. To activate it, simply tap on it.
If the toggle isn’t visible for some reason, click the edit button and then drag and drop the toggle from the hidden portion to the visible section.
