Safe Comic Reading Tips for Your Smartphone


We are aware that some comic stories are not appropriate for children of all ages to read. So, if you read online comics with more mature content, here are some tips for doing so safely on your smartphone.

We must recognize that many comic books contain adult themes. Whether it’s in the form of horror stories, scenes of excessive violence (gore), or something more than just sexy, there’s something for everyone ( smut ).

If you’re a fan of those comics, you might be concerned if someone else borrows your smartphone. For example, parents who lend smartphones to their children, colleagues who borrow for specific purposes, and so on.

We can, thankfully, avoid it. First and foremost, we can remove the application from the application list. Second, there are applications that provide enhanced security, such as hiding applications from the list of recently used apps, hiding notifications, and securing them with biometric authentication.

Tachiyomi is the name of that app. Please give it a shot if you haven’t already. Don’t forget to read about how to use the Tachiyomi app.

Security settings for the Tachiyomi app

  1. Launch the Tachiyom program.
  2. Click the ‘More’ button.
  3. Navigate to the ‘Settings’ menu.
  4. Navigate to the ‘Security’ menu.
    • Enable the biometric lock option.
    • Apps will be hidden from the multitasking view and will not be detected by screenshots.
    • Hide the content of notifications.

The Tachiyomi application is now even more hidden. You can read your favorite online comics with greater ease.

Tachiyomi will not be visible if you are reading and looking at the multitasking display (last application or switching applications). It is safe to do so.

If the application sends a notification (for example, that a new chapter has been published), the notification content will also be hidden on the screen. This can help to avoid other people’s curious looks.

Most importantly, in order to open the application, biometric authentication, such as fingerprint recognition, must be used. As a result, not everyone can access the application.

These are some pointers for reading comics on smartphones more safely with the Tachiyomi app. Enjoy your reading!
