How to make your Android unlock pattern visible
Michael Callahan: Hi this is Mike Callahan, Dr. File Finder and welcome to your butterscotch.com tutorial on how to make your unlock pattern visible on your Android phone. Sometimes it could be a little complicated to get your pattern correct, I will show a pattern here, because all you see are the nine circles. Often some people would get confused and not be able to get their pattern in correctly. So what you could do is you can make it so that it's visible as you draw it in on the screen. Here is how we will do that.
First we will unlock it and if you could see on the screen you couldn't see me tracing anything. Now tap Settings, go to Location & Security, tap on that. Now you can see here Change unlock pattern, Require pattern, Use visible pattern, so you want to tap on that.
What I will do now is show you the difference, so we will back out, tap on the home key so we go back to our home screen. I will lock the device and now when I start to draw in my pattern, you can see it on the screen. Then when I complete it, we've got it unlocked. But in this way you can see the pattern as you are drawing it with your finger tip and sometimes it makes it easier to do your unlock pattern correctly.
So that's making your unlock pattern visible and that's all there is to it.
