As millennials, we are in the habit of taking selfies all the time, whether it is to share with our friends, to put them on social media or just keep them for ourselves. Whatever be the case, it might make you uncomfortable when someone takes a look at your private pictures, right? We have all used the lock screen password to keep our phones protected, but what if someone asks you for your password? How do you refuse?

Or, what if you have some screenshots that you only share with your closest friends, but your mom wants to call someone, and you’re worried about her finding out?

That’s exactly why you need the Alt Z Life, where you can enjoy your freedom without even the slightest of worry! This is a life where your private content always remains private and, no one, except you, has access to it.

Alt Z Life is the way to go

Haven’t we all encountered situations where we have had to make excuses to not give away our phones? In some cases, you are forced to share your phone with your friends or family, and you feel constantly worried if someone gets a sneak peek at your private pictures. 

Which is why Samsung has incorporated some industry-first privacy features like Quick Switch and Intelligent Content Suggestions. Part of the brand’s ‘Make in India’ initiative, these features make you feel at ease while sharing your smartphone with somebody. 

Quick Switch, for instance, allows you to switch from public to private modes of your phone gallery, browser, and apps like WhatsApp with only a double click of the power key. Imagine a situation where you are showing a picture to your friend and your boss walks in. And you wouldn’t want your boss to see that picture. So, what do you do?

Take a cue from actor Radhika Madan, who finds herself in a similar situation. Can you guess what happens next? She uses the Quick Switch feature, and her boss never finds out the truth!

Intelligent Content Suggestions, on the other hand, is an ‘On Device AI’ feature suggests photos that can be safely put in a private version of the gallery. It’s a great way to keep your pictures private by just selecting faces or images that you don’t want to show anyone!
