How To Enable & Disable Magazine Lock Screen on Android

If you wish to enable or disable Magazine lock screen on your Android phone, then you’ve definitely come to the right spot. If you’re not aware, the Magazine lock screen feature instantly deactivates the feature to set pictures as your wallpaper.

Magazine Lock on Android phones allows your phone to use random wallpapers with quotes which get changed every time you unlock your device. Smartphone makers like Infinix and Oppo have this feature in some of their Smartphones. The magazine lock gets Updated regularly with new wallpapers along with new quotes which make it feel different every time you unlock your phone. While some people, (Like me) like and use this feature, some others don’t and would like to disable it. Some people just don’t like the magazine lock and would like to use just one lock screen wallpaper as opposed to the changing lock screen wallpaper of the magazine lock screen.

For those who do not know, both lock screen Magazine on your phone and the lock screen picture can’t be used at the same time, so you only get to choose one or the other. It is simple, the options before you are choosing lock screen Magazine or locking screen profile picture, plus you can’t also use a 3D image or wallpaper as your Magazine lock.

Magazine lock screen is basically a feature that enables a dynamic wallpaper on your smartphone, instead of the regular static wallpaper most users are used to. It works as a lock screen poster on Android devices, helping owners to flaunt several wallpapers or images as screen lock wallpaper and screen saver to bring out the beauty of their phones.

Some others would also like to make use of their picture or the picture of a spouse, child, sibling, etc. as their wallpaper which is not possible with magazine lock active. So in order to use another picture as your wallpaper, you’ll first have to deactivate or turn off the magazine lock screen feature. To do that, simply follow the outlined steps below.

Set Lock Screen VIVO Wallpaper

  • Before anything else, unlock your VIVO phone.
  • Head to Settings.
  • Click on the Lock Screen, Home Screen, and Wallpaper option.
  • Tap “Wallpaper” on the screen.
  • Locate the wallpaper of your choice as your lock screen VIVO Wallpaper HD.
  • Tap “Apply” to save changes.

That is that. You can now press the power button for a millisecond to lock and dim your phone light. After that, re-click it once more to view the lock screen.

Remove OPPO Screen Lock Wallpaper

  • Head to OPPO phone settings.
  • Click “Wallpaper” or lock screen.
  • Untick the dynamic wallpaper.
  • Click “Apply” to save changes.

This will immediately reverse the default wallpaper on your OPPO device.
