Make Galaxy S10 Open Home Screen after Face Unlock (Disable ‘Stay on Lock screen’)

Galaxy S10 owners often complain that they need to swipe on the screen after they successfully authorize using the face unlock feature. Here is how to make your S10 take you directly to the home screen after you face unlock it. What’s the point of doing extra movements, especially if they don’t boost the security?

From now on you will see your home screen after you face unlock your Galaxy S10 / S9.

P.S. We do not recommend to disable “Lift to wake”. Otherwise you will need to press the Power button before using the face recognition feature! But you don’t like extra steps.

  1. Thank you. A Samsung S10+ with stock Android or better yet Oxygen OS would be the ULTIMATE PHONE! Samsung’s One UI is better but IT STILL SUCKS
