How to pin screens in Android 5.0 Lollipop [Tip]

In Android 5.0 Lollipop, you can enable the “screen pinning” option to pin the screen of an app that you’re currently viewing. This way, you can secure the app’s screen to avoid accidental swipes or taps. In other words, screen pinning will lock your Android display in a single view.

This option is also great for sharing screens to other users. For example, you can enable screen pinning before you let your friend watch a video or photo slideshow on your phone. Since you’ve pinned your screen, they cannot easily navigate away even if they press the home or back button.
