What is Guest Mode on Android?

Before lending your phone or tablet to others, highlight Guest Mode if you don't want them to read sensitive information on the device. This is a great feature to protect privacy on Android.

Enabling Guest Mode creates a temporary account for guests, allowing them to access only basic applications such as Gmail, Google Maps, Google Chrome... That means that guest cannot read contacts, messages, photos or anything related to a personal Google account. Calls, texts, and related notifications are all blocked.

Guest users can download apps from Google Play, but must sign in with their Google account and use a different payment method. If an app is already on your device, it will be copied to the guest account. They can switch to your account at any time. However, if you lock your Android device with a PIN or password, they won't be able to re-enter your smartphone without your permission.

Note: The steps will vary slightly depending on the device and Android version.
