The MIUI 12 is very attentive to this aspect and in fact has introduced numerous features that allow you to protect your personal data and safeguard your identity. In this regard, it has also introduced a new way in which create a virtual identity with which to open different “disposable” profiles. Another feature introduced with the latest customization is the one that allows show blurry previews in so-called multitasking. Let's see how to do it in this guide.

Here's how to show blurry application previews on MIUI 12: multitasking shows applications with blur effect to ensure privacy

When we use our smartphone, whatever it is, the applications remain in memory or rather in the background. Clearly the more we open, the more the RAM goes under strain, with the consequent effect of a slowdown of the system. Not what interests us, but cleaning the cache every now and then is always recommended. Doing swipe upwards (if you use gestures) or by tapping on one of the virtual keys you enter the so-called multitasking. Through this menu you can see the previews of all background apps. But for privacy reasons we can also make these previews blurry.
