How to Lock Samsung Gear Fit Screen when Bluetooth is Disconnected [Privacy Lock]



Samsung Gear Fit is Smart watch which can do everything which your Smartphone can, from calls to the camera, messaging, etc. So there is a big issue of privacy which comes up as anyone can access your phone through the Gear Fit when it is synced, or connected through Bluetooth and also when you have stopped using your Gear fit and disconnected it from your Smartphone.
To counter this there is a Privacy Lock option given by Samsung that should be activated to set a Four digit pin to unlock your Gear Fit whenever it is locked. It is a great feature as it allows you to be assured of your privacy.

How to Activate and Use Privacy Lock option in Gear Fit

From your Gear Fit Home Screen, you have a scroll to the Left or Right to get the Settings App which will be beside the Notifications and Media Controller Apps.

Here make sure that the PIN option is selected and go back to your home screen.

Whenever you disconnect your Gear Fit device form your Smartphone Privacy Lock will get activated automatically and, you will have to unlock your Gear Fit by entering the four-digit password which you saved earlier.

Your Bluetooth connection will be present for 30 feet so if anytime your device gets stolen, or the distance between your device and phone is more than 30 feet the Privacy lock gets activated automatically and makes it useless for a thief.

Make sure you don’t put any common or very difficult Passwords which you might not remember. And even if you do we will be writing a Step by Step tutorial on how to Unlock your Gear fit when you forgot the password.
