    Is it possible to hide lock pattern while unlocking Android phone?

    I used to unlock my Android phone with a lock pattern. But, I don’t want to show up the pattern during unlocking as someone can imitate the gesture and unlock the device. How can I set up the phone to hide the lock pattern?

    As a first step, open the app drawer on your phone. Then, tap over the gear icon for launching the ‘Settings’ app. Scroll down to the bottom part until you reach ‘Security’ option. Click on that option and locate ‘Make pattern visible’ item. This item will be displayed only when the ‘Secured with pattern’ option is selected under‘Lock settings’. Select the checkbox next to this item with a single tap. Quit the ‘Settings’ app and see whether you can view the pattern or not while unlocking the screen.

    You can easily hide your lock pattern through changing settings. First goto settings app and choose location and security then press you see a option like visible passwords as you type then disable this feature. That's all you can hide your drawing patterns during when when you will draw. Remember you should not lose your pattern while go into the features.
