How to Show Reminders On Phone Lock Screen?

Share This:

Reminders are an essential tool for helping us stay organized and on top of tasks. But if you’re like most people, you don’t always remember to check your reminders. That’s why it’s helpful to have reminders show up on your lock screen so you can be sure to never miss one!

Fortunately, with most Android phones, it’s easy to set up reminders to show on your lock screen. Here’s how:

First, open the settings app on your device and tap “Apps & Notifications.” Then select “Lock screen” and choose the option “Notifications on the lock screen.” This will allow notifications from apps such as Reminders to appear on your lock screen.

Next, open the Reminders app and make sure that notifications are enabled for it in the app settings. You can also customize how much information is displayed in the reminder notification- such as whether or not you want to see a description of the reminder or just its title- by going into “Settings > Notifications > Reminders > Banner Style.” Make sure that “Persistent” is selected so that the reminder stays visible until it is marked as completed or dismissed.

Finally, if you want quick access to your reminders without having to unlock your phone each time, consider adding a Tasks widget to one of your home screens. To do this, touch and hold any empty section of the Home screen, then tap Widgets at the bottom of the screen. Find a Tasks widget and drag it onto one of your home screens – then select which account you would like its tasks pulled from (if applicable). Now you can scroll through all of your current reminders without ever unlocking your phone!

With these steps complete, you should now be able to view all of your Reminders directly from your lock screen – ensuring that no task will ever slip through the cracks again!
