This update does far more than restore existing features, adding plenty of new options to choose from. This much variety may seem daunting at first, so let's talk about everything Good Lock has to offer, and how to get the most out of it.

Samsung's 'Theme Park' Good Lock module lets you create custom themes on One UI devices (APK download)

When Samsung's Good Lock customization app made its debut a few years ago, it was limited to configuring the lock screen, recents menu, and notifications.

While the final product is very close to achieving this goal, engineers had to get rid of superfluous elements to make the cutout as small as possible. As such, the LED indicator has been removed to make room for extra pixels, leaving many users frustrated and without a way to easily know they have notifications to look at. Sure, Always On Display can help alleviate this, but it's not as easy to see as a flashing light from afar.

We recently told you about Holey Light, a third-party app that puts an animated circle around the S10's cutout when you receive notifications.
