Lockscreen-Shortcut, -Symbol, -Icon

Hello

 

Is there any possibility to add App-Shortcuts (e. g. WhatsApp) to the lockscreen? Everywhere I search, I find a "System UI Tuner Option" ... but not on my phone ... Model F5121, Android 8.0.0, Stand Apr 1 2018.

 

Many Thanks.

In order to enable System UI tuner, drag the status bar down, keep pressed the settings cogwheel for about 5 seconds, and when you release you will be asked if you want to enable system ui tuner.

Thank you very much. It works ---> for System UI Tuner. Unfortunately, this tuner does not help put app-shortcuts on the lockscreen.

 

Any other idea add app-shortcuts to lockscreen?

It seems that feature is not available for Xperia (it is for some other brands).

Tank you very much. That sounds like IT is the solution. But I think, then I prefer not to do that. That's too complicated for me then. And there's certainly a reason why it's not so easy to enable the debugging options. Thanks again for the hint.
