Hello, I’m quite new using e/ and figuring around with basic settings. I can’t find a way to block wifi bluetooth ect. switch from the lock screen locked. Is there a way to block it or not? When no it would be probably a security issue. I’m using e/ 0.21 on a galaxy s8.
On the lock screen, slide down from the top. You’ll see a panel with various settings allowing you to turn of Wifi, Bluetooth, Mobile Data, or turn on Airplane mode (but that will block incoming cals too)
On my previous stock android i could choose to have a password request to switch on/off aireplaine wifi or Bluetooth.
It makes sense if your device is stolen or lost and you use a finding app to prevent a third person switch off the connectivity.
Edit: Actually the person could just switch off the phone… So.
Switching off is not an issue if you are dealing with a replaceable battery.
Just take it out.
Even if you have a protective case it may not last longer than seconds for a quick fingered person.
But you are right on the perspective of a possible security problem. I would like to have the choice wheter these settings are accessible without your code.
Some nasty person could take advantage of a few moments of unawareness and just switch on airplane mode to keep you from getting that call…
