Lock Notification Area?


I’m new to the Android stuff and just installed /e/ recently–trying to learn.

I noticed how the notification area (the area you pull down from the top of the screen is just not protected by a password).

Anyone can just pull down that area and switch WiFi Network, read notification, enable blue tooth, etc.

Seems pretty unsafe to me. Is there any way to totall block access to the phone without a password?

Thank you
