how to use camera when phone is locked

In Windows phone you can “press and hold” the camera button to launch the camera without unlocking the screen. This will launch the camera in locked mode; i.e., you will not be able to access other items other than the camera & pictures shot in the current session. Below is how you enable it.

  1. Navigate to settings.
  2. Swipe right to “applications” tab.
  3. Tap “photos + camera”.
  4. Check the option “Press and hold camera button to wake up the phone”.
