Finding the right settings on Android can be tricky, as software menus tend to vary by phone manufacturer. We’ll walk you through choosing the right option for the version of Android that Samsung has rolled out for its Galaxy phones, but if you’re using phones from different smartphone manufacturers, the process should be broadly similar.
From Settings, select sound and vibration and volumethen click the three dots (top right) and select Media volume limitHere you can turn the feature on and adjust the slider below to set the maximum volume you want – there’s also the option to set a PIN to protect this setting (for example if you’re configuring a kid’s phone).
Android being Android, you can use many third-party apps to limit the volume on your device. One of the best is the freemium volume lock: not only does it limit how loud the volume can be, it also does this based on the type of audio, for example, an alarm can be louder than the music. A one-time fee of $5.49 unlocks all options, but limits media volume for free.
Alternatively, check out the free volume limiter, Volume Lock. It enables you to set different volume limits based on the audio output you’re using (speakers or headphones), it displays a warning of excessive volume in the notification shade, and it’s simple and intuitive to use. There’s even an option to exclude specific apps from the volume limit.
