How to Set and Activate the Invisible Lock Pattern on a Mobile Phone?
It is characteristic that on Android mobiles there are different blocking methods Of the device; Whether with a pin, password or pattern, Android devices have a variety of security methods. Among these security methods, some are said to be more secure than others.
For instance, password is usually the safest way to unlock, then the pin would come and finally we would have the pattern. The unlock pattern is a little less secure than the other methods because Anyone could follow the path of the password with their eyes, memorize it and that way they would already have access to your device.
However, to make this form of unlocking a little more secure, there is a setting that allows you to make the pattern invisible, and if you want to know how to activate it, stay tuned because we will tell you about it later.
What are the most common unlock patterns?
Unlock patterns usually have shapes that are a bit more common than others. It is true that the combinations can be infinite, but patterns like letters and numbers are easy to decipher for how common they are. Either way, we will tell you a little more about this topic.
Letters and numbers
Among the 9 unlocking points that make up the patterns of this security method, different letters and numbers can be formed through the tour of the points.
One of the easiest letters to form is “L, C, G, U, V, M, A, or Z.” In the case of numbers, you can form 1,2,4,5,6,7 and 9. The ease of making these patterns is what makes them so common in this security method, so if you choose to use it, we recommend that you better look for a pattern that is a little more original and difficult and less common.
Five and eight points
Letter patterns as common as L usually touch a maximum of 5 dots, however, there are many other pattern combinations that use the same amount of points, and the same happens with 8-point passwords.
The truth is that the number of points that your unlock pattern touches is not so important because what matters most is the difficulty of the pattern. If you use a 5 point pattern that has a good difficulty then your phone will be a bit more protected.
If you do the same with an 8 point pattern, you will continue to take good care of your privacy, but if you have a very simple 8-point pattern, you should bear in mind that anyone could memorize it and thus your privacy would be a bit at risk.

How can the visibility of the pattern be turned back on?

What do you do to hide the unlock pin while typing?
When you set the unlock pin as a security method, which is different from the pattern, basically what you do is place a numeric combination as unlock code from your mobile.
With this security method, in most mobiles it is not necessary to activate an option so that the pin is hidden while writing to unlock the Android cell phone, because by default the pin is hidden.
Now, it is true that the numbers in keyboard to unlock if they remain visible, but there is no way to make them not be seen, because what cannot be seen will be which number you have dialed.
