Looking for an easier way to access your notifications than swiping down from the top of your Honor 8 screen? Sometimes it can be difficult to reach the top of the display without using a second hand or adjusting your grip, but luckily with the Honor 8 there is another way to access them that won't make you do that.

  1. Open the notification shade and tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Scroll down and tap Fingerprint ID.
  3. Tap to turn on Show notification panel under the Slide gesture category.

That's all there is to it. Now you'll be able to swipe down on the fingerprint sensor to access your notification pane anytime the phone is unlocked. Viewing your notifications, accessing settings and more can now be done easily with just one hand.
