How to Configure Blue Light Filter to Activate Automatically on Samsung Galaxy Tab S6

This post will teach you how to configure the blue light filter to automatically activate on the Galaxy Tab S6 as scheduled. Read on to view more detailed instructions.

Blue Light Filter and Its Uses

Filtering Blue light is imperative to help reduce digital eye strain and thereby prevents your eyes from feeling so tired. Prolonged exposure to blue light can result in the suppression of melatonin production in the body. When this happens, you will have a hard time getting a good sleep. 

In response to this concern, smartphone manufacturers commit to roll out new devices with blue light integration. So, all users have to do is to activate this feature on their respective devices in order to keep their eyes protected from such harmful blue rays emission.

With the Blue light filter enabled, the amount of blue light displayed on the screen of the device will be reduced. 


If you’re wondering how to access and manage this feature on the Galaxy Tab S6, I’ve mapped out these subsequent directions.

Alternative Solutions to Harmful Blue Light Emissions

Aside from the built-in blue light settings, Android devices like the Tab S6 also have other anti-blue light features that can be used when needed. One of these is the so-called dark mode or night mode feature.

Making use of these features is highly recommended especially in the evening to evade from any potential health risks from tab and smartphone radiation.

Third-party made screen accessories like screen protectors can also be used as alternative resources as they usually integrate a medically rated blue light filter. Using such screen protectors can therefore block blue light emissions while retaining the same crystal-clear screen quality and color of your device’s display.

And that covers everything in this quick tutorial.
