Start here: 16 things every Honor 6X user should do
With all the information we have stored on our smartphones, it can be a uncomfortable experience to simply allow someone borrow your phone to pay a bill or research something online. For those times when someone may need to use your phone for an extended amount of time Guest mode on the Honor 6X is the perfect way to give someone their own space, while keeping all the personal content on your device private. Here’s how you turn it on:
- Open the Settings app
- Scroll down and select Users
- Tap on Add Guest at the bottom
To allow phone calls (a big reason why someone may want to use your phone), tap on the newly created Guest user and select “Allow calls and sharing of communication history.” Just know that this option will merge your call history, allowing either user to see the entire call log.
While in Guest mode, the Honor 6X essentially starts as a completely new device. There’s no lockscreen password, apps, or even Google accounts tied to the Guest account, meaning your personal messages, photos, downloads — everything — will be kept safe and away from prying eyes.
Even if you’re not sure you’ll be using Guest user anytime soon, you may want to add the User now and have it ready for those times when someone needs to quickly borrow your smartphone. Why not?
