Smartphones help all of us stay productive, stay connected, access information, and nurture our passions and interests. Smartphones these days hold all our information – from emails to messages to work-related data, along with our personal content. Keeping our personal data safe and making sure our privacy isn’t compromised is of utmost importance.

Privacy means keeping one’s life private even from friends or family members. That’s where Alt Z Life comes in.

A lot of us, especially the Gen Z and millennials, have faced situations wherein someone in our family or a friend has asked for our smartphone to make a call and ended up seeing our private picture gallery. You would want to avoid that situation, but without saying “No.” What if you had a life in which you can hand over your phone worry-free without having concerns about anyone invading your privacy?

This life is called the Alt Z Life, where your private life remains private. It’s a reality now, and it’s just a double click away.

Wondering how you too can enjoy the Alt Z Life? Let us explain…

Take, for example, your picture gallery. Millennials and Gen Z have loads of photos and videos that they don’t want others to see. Till now, the solution has been to use an app lock on the Gallery app. But what happens when friends or siblings ask you to unlock the app? More likely than not, you will give in… and all your locks and privacy protections go for a toss.

Quick Switch feature allows you to switch smoothly between the main gallery and the private gallery in secure folder, one for the public and another one for just you. So, all the photos that you are comfortable showing to the world, such as images of trips you have taken, events you attended, etc., can be in the public version of the gallery. On the other hand, private photos – like personal moments, crazy videos from parties, etc. – go into a private gallery app. And no one can see this private version of the app unless you let them.

It gets better though: not only does Quick Switch work with default apps such as Gallery, it also lets you keep WhatsApp conversations, Snapchat profile, Browser, and so many other apps hidden from public view. You can have a private version of your apps and internet browser in the Secure Folder, which is an encrypted private space powered by the defence-grade Samsung Knox security platform. This ensures you never feel insecure about anything personal that’s on your phone.

With Quick Switch, you enjoy the Alt Z Life – relaxed, unburdened by worries about privacy. Amazed by how great the feature is?
