[Other] [MIUI Beginner's Guide #5] How To Hide Your Real-time On-screen App Data From Recents Menu?

Greetings Dear Mi Fans,
    Are you concerned about privacy? Obviously, yes! Then, why others are able to see real-time on-screen data of the important apps in Recents Panel?

To make it unclear or hide, follow the steps below:

1. Scroll down & tap Manage Apps (in some Redmi phones, it's available as Installed Apps) in Settings Menu.

2. Click on the app for which you wanna hide your real-time on screen data from Recents Panel. For example, I've chosen Google Play Store.

3. Scroll down to find the option 'Blur App Previews' and enable it.

    That's all! Now, you can check for the app in Recents Panel. Google Play Store is there in recents, but it's data isn't visible anymore, as it's thumbnail preview is blurred.

     Hope you liked this short guide to enhance your privacy while using MIUI. I'll be back soon, till then enjoy MIUIng!

Signing off,

Special Thanks to @Elaine2046 & MIUI Tools Subforum Management Team!
