If you want to have a look at the memories you have recently, then you can go ahead and access the Photos widget where a thumbnail can be seen. Apart from that, you also have the ability to go ahead and search for a specific app, check and reply to any of the messages that you receive and even go ahead and cancel your ride through Uber when you see the notification.

All this can easily be done just from your lock screen itself and you do not have to open your device unless it is really important. So with so many features, the question is what can go wrong?

This can result in your personal information being in the wrong hands.

This is one of the reasons why it is important that you should sit down to think carefully, that when you speak about the privacy factor, is the compromise worth just for a few conveniences which can be potentially risky for you? Another question you need to ask yourself about the level of information that would be disclosed would be worth.
