Samsung Galaxy S7 How to add Owner information - Solved

Unfortunately it can happen from time to time that the own smartphone, such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 gets lost.

Therefore it is always advisable to prepare your own device so that it is easier to locate the owner.

Samsung Galaxy S7

For the Samsung Galaxy S7 there is the option to display text on the lock screen. We explain here how to add the „Info about the owner" on the Samsung Galaxy S7.

1. Open from the Home screen the menu and then the Settings

2. Select here the menu item "Device Security" and then "Information and App Shortcut”

3. Tap now on "About owner" and then type in the opening text box your text

4. We recommend the following text: "If found, please call: „YOUR NUMBER alternative" Thanks =)"

5. Save your info

From now on the Info is displayed on the lock screen of the Samsung Galaxy S7. If someone finds your Samsung Galaxy S7, then he can of course don´t unlock the Lock screen, but with the information message about the owner he has now at least one number with which he might reach you.

We hope that this info helps to get your Samsung Galaxy S7 back again when it is lost.

This guide is way off base for the Galaxy S7. The settings you need to change are under:

Lock Screen And Security
-Clock and FaceWidgets
-Contact Information
