How to Change the LG G7 Lockscreen & Wallpaper is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

In this guide we’ll show you how to change the LG G7 lock screen and wallpaper image. These steps include adding your own images and photos, or themes, instead of just using the backgrounds that came on your phone.

LG’s G7 ThinQ has a big 6.1-inch Quad HD display that looks great, even with the notch. Getting a high quality and high-resolution wallpaper will look better and give you the best experience. We’ll show you all the customization options, how to change it, then recommend the best places to get a wallpaper.

One of the reasons to change your lock screen and wallpaper is customization. Making your phone more unique and personal. We like that LG has multiple options, including setting a different image for the lock screen and the background wallpaper. Here’s how to get started.

How to Change the LG G7 ThinQ Lock Screen & Wallpaper

There are a few different ways to change the lock screen or background wallpaper. The easiest way is to simply press and hold a blank area on the screen, then tap on wallpapers. Simply follow our instructions below. You can even set your own image for the lock screen, one that’s different from the background.

Push and hold on a blank area on the screen (display) It will zoom out to a customization menu, select Wallpaper Tap on My Photos or scroll through the image gallery or collage gallery Now select the image you want, crop to fit, and hit Apply Wallpaper Choose home screen, lock screen or both

Like most manufacturers, LG adds pretty landscape photography shots and other images with the phone. This way you can choose from a wide selection of images without taking photos or downloading new wallpapers. Tap My Photos to select from your own gallery or the collage for even more image choices. This is how people use a photo they took of their family, kids, or pets on their screen.

You can always go to Settings > Display > Lock screen for more options or to change the background.

To find some beautiful wallpapers like you see online download the app called Zedge and browse their collection. Make sure you get at least a 1080p HD image or bigger so you can crop it without losing any quality. We recommend a full 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD (or bigger) image for the best results.

Lock Screen Wallpaper

In case you didn’t notice during our instructions above, adding a wallpaper to the lock screen is just as easy. Follow the same steps but choose to use any particular image on the lock screen, not the home screen. When you find the image you’d like to use and hit apply the phone will ask, “Do you want to apply this to the home screen, the lock screen, or both?”

Select both if you only want one image, or which area you want to apply it to. I have a Packers logo on my lock screen and something else when I unlock my phone.

Other Details and Lock Screen Customization

Sadly that’s about all you can change on the LG G7 lock screen. The company puts a microphone and camera shortcut icon in the bottom corners, but you can’t change these for something else, like a text message app. You can, however, enable the always-on display, add owner information, or change the on-screen keys.

If you’d like to fully change and customize the lock screen on the G7 you’ll need to replace your home screen launcher. The most popular app for this is NOVA Launcher, which is highly customizable. Give it a try today or enjoy the stock images on the LG G7. We also recommend owners head to Settings and search for themes, then try a new look and theme from the LG theme store.

Bionic prostheses have evolved by leaps and bounds. One thing that most of them can't do, however, is let their wearers feel pain. That's changing thanks to researchers at the Johns Hopkins.

Google's new API improves biometric authentication in Android P

Google has announced a biometric authentication API which enables developers to improve the security of their apps.

Biometrics has become a favoured and quick security method for users. While there are certainly more secure methods of authentication, few are so fast and unintrusive.

Vishwath Mohan, Security Engineer at Google, wrote in a blog post:

“Biometric authentication mechanisms are becoming increasingly popular, and it's easy to see why. They're faster than typing a password, easier than carrying around a separate security key, and they prevent one of the most common pitfalls of knowledge-factor based authentication—the risk of shoulder surfing.”

Knowledge-factor based authentication is something like a PIN or password. Aside from biometrics, the other major form of authentication is possession-based – which uses something you own like a token generator.

Google wants to improve two major areas with biometric authentication in Android P:

Define a better model to measure biometric security, and use that to functionally constrain weaker authentication methods.

Provide a common platform-provided entry point for developers to integrate biometric authentication into their apps.

There are currently two metrics used for biometric authentication – False Accept Rate (FAR), and False Reject Rate (FRR).

Google believes FAR is a security concern as it measures how often an illegitimate user is accidentally recognised as being the device owner. FRR is problematic for usability, according to Google, as it measures how often a legitimate device owner has to retry their authentication.

Two new metrics have been added in Android P – Spoof Accept Rate (SAR), and Imposter Accept Rate (IAR). They measure how easily an attacker bypasses authentication.

Spoofing refers to the use of a known-good recording (e.g. replaying a voice recording or using a face or fingerprint picture), while impostor acceptance means a successful mimicking of another user's biometric (e.g. trying to sound or look like a target user).

These metrics were used to categorise biometric authentication mechanisms as either strong or weak – with seven percent or lower representing strong, or above seven percent as weak.

With the BiometricPrompt API, Google wanted to allow weaker biometrics while still reducing the risk of unauthorised access.

“BiometricPrompt only exposes strong modalities, so developers can be assured of a consistent level of security across all devices their application runs on,” wrote Mohan. “A support library is also provided for devices running Android O and earlier, allowing applications to utilize the advantages of this API across more devices.”

The API enables the platform to select which biometric is most appropriate without developers having to implement specific logic for it themselves.

You can find documentation for the BiometricPrompt API here.
