On Android, the lock screen shows a big double-line clock when no notifications are available. Otherwise, a smaller clock will appear on the top-left corner of the screen.
Although a bigger design can make it easier to see the time, it takes up a lot of space and gets in the way of the lock screen background image. If you prefer only to show a small clock, Android 13 and higher versions include an option to disable the double-line clock.
This guide will show you the steps to hide the double-line clock and show a smaller version on your Android lock screen instead.
Disable lock screen double-line clock on Android
To disable the big double-line clock on Android 13 or higher, use these steps:
Tap on Display.
Tap on Lock screen.
Turn off the Double-line clock toggle switch to hide the big clock.
Once you complete the steps, whether or not you have notifications on the screen, the clock will only appear as a single line element in the top-left corner of the lock screen.
