Best Practices & Preparation

Maximize the effectiveness of your mobile screen share session with these proactive measures

Turn off your notification 
  • For Androids, Go to Settings -> Notifications -> Do Not Disturb

This will prevent any notifications from appearing while you are screen sharing.



  • For iOS devices, Go to Settings -> Notifications -> Do Not Disturb -> Click on the Do Not Disturb toggle to turn it on -> Ensure that "Silence" is set to "Always"

This will hide notifications from appearing as you are screen-sharing your mobile device or tablet during the session.

Turn Off Auto-Lock Settings (iOS only)
  • Go to Settings -> Display & Brightness -> Auto-lock -> Never

This will prevent iOS devices from disconnecting the screen share in the event it goes to lock mode.


Confirm your device battery
Ensure that your battery is fully charged or connected to a charger during your sessions.
Connect your device to Wi-Fi
Make sure that your device is connected to Wi-Fi
