Netflix continues to improve its application for Android. If few days ago we brought their new parental controls now he brings us in his latest update another important novelty: the screen lock.

Now the player of Netflix allows us to lock the screen, that is to say, hide and lock its playback controls to avoid touch screen accidental.


This novelty does not block the application. It does not prevent that we can get out of it, to do this we have to follow using the function of ‘Setting’ screen of our mobile. The lock screen of Netflix is limited to prevent that we can use the playback controls and use gestures to go back or forward the playback

How to activate the screen lock

Activate the lock screen of Netflix is very simple. During the playback we just have to touch the screen to display the controls. Down there to the left we will see the new option Screen lock.

Enabling this option will disappear the playback controls, and each time we touch the screen we will get a notice informing us that we have the locked screen. To unlock the controls we have to touch on the message “Screen locked” and then confirm by tapping on the “Unlock controls?”.
