LG G5 H831,2nd user account, HOW?

 
Guys,

I have a Fido LG G5 H831. My son asks to borrow my phone sometimes. I would like to add a guest account or a 2nd account so he can use the phone without us seeing each other's data. I don't see a user profile or avatar to access and add a 2nd account. LG chat were stumped and "promised to get back to me.

Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Hello @roro4848,

 

The mulit-user feature was removed from the G5, it was confirmed on the Rogers forum here.

 

You might want to try the screen pinning feature, you can pin an app so whoever is using your phone can't switch out of the pinned app.

 

To enable it and get full instructions on how to use it go to settings -> finger print & security -> scroll to bottom and turn "screen pin" on.

Thanks for the reply, I did see the Rogers reply while searching for a solution. I was hoping to find an app that would allow adding and switching users.

 

Thanks again.
