how to avoid accidental camera launch when inside pocket

One of the biggest issue with hardware buttons is that when you place your in a tight pocket, there are chances that the button might get activated. Similarly with windows phone having the feature to launch the camera even when the camera is locked, it is more likely that this will happen that your camera will launch when you keep it inside your tight pockets. Such accident can ruin your battery and also fill your camera roll with accidental pictures /  movies.

  1. Navigate to settings.
  2. Swipe right to applications tab.
  3. Tap the “photos + camera”.
  4. Check the option “Prevent accidental camera launch when phone is locked”.

Remember this will still allow you to launch the camera (if set) with the press and hold of the hardware camera button when outside the pocket. However it will not launch when you press the button keeping it inside the pocket. Brilliant isn’t it?
