How to Lock, Restart, and Switch off a Google Pixel Phone

How to Lock, Restart, and Switch off a Google Pixel Phone;- The Google Pixel phones are among the most popular smartphones on the market. They’re known for their high-powered cameras, fast performance and sleek designs—but what if you need to turn off your phone? Or restart it? If this happens, then here’s how you can do it:

Turn off the phone

  1. Press and hold the power button for at least 8 seconds until you see a blue circle with an exclamation point appear on your screen.
  2. When the phone vibrates, release the power button but continue to hold it down for another second or two (the screen will be black). If you do not feel any vibrations, then repeat steps 1 through 3 again until you get a notification that says “Turn Off” in green letters above a white number signifying how much time is remaining before turning off your Pixel device completely instead of just putting it into sleep mode (which is what I did).

Restart the phone

  1. To restart your phone, hold down the power button for a few seconds.
  2. You should see a screen that says “Starting system update” and then an animation of Google’s logo before it turns off again.
  3. When the phone restarts, you will be greeted with a Home screen (the same one that shows up when you first turn on your Pixel).
  4. You can now unlock your phone by swiping up from any part of this screen or use any other method for unlocking that you’re familiar with.

Lock your phone’s screen

If you have a Google Pixel phone, you can use your fingerprint sensor to lock the screen. You can also set up a pattern or PIN code that will prevent anyone from accessing your phone’s contents.

If these options aren’t available to you and there are no buttons on the device itself (like those found on an iPhone), then it might be simpler for someone else who knows how to use them to access your device remotely by using their own computer or mobile device as an intermediary connection between themselves and yours.

Turning off, restarting, and locking your device are easy.

Turning off, restarting, and locking your device are easy.

To turn off the Pixel: Press and hold the power button for about five seconds until you see “Turn off.” Then tap that option.

To restart it: Hold down both volume buttons at the same time until you see “Restart.” You can also use this option if you have trouble with a bootloop (a situation in which your phone keeps restarting). If nothing else works but your battery is dead or low on juice (or both), try this!


If you’re having issues with your phone, try turning it off, restarting it, and locking the screen. You can also try uninstalling any apps that might be interfering with your connection or causing problems. If these steps don’t work for you, contact us for more help!
