Are you tired of accidentally triggering actions on your Android device by double tapping? Whether it’s opening an app or zooming in on a webpage, the double tap feature can sometimes be more of a nuisance than a convenience.

Fortunately, you can easily turn off double tap on your Android device. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, unlock your Android device and locate the Settings app. It is usually represented by a gear icon and can be found on your home screen or in the app drawer. Tap on the Settings app to open it.

Step 2: Navigate to Accessibility Settings

Once you have opened the Settings app, scroll down until you find the Accessibility option. Tap on it to access the accessibility settings.

Step 3: Find and Tap on Interaction Controls

In the accessibility settings menu, locate and tap on Interaction Controls. This section allows you to customize various touch interactions on your Android device.

Step 4: Disable Double Tap

In the interaction controls menu, scroll down until you find the Double Tap Timeout option. By default, this option is enabled with a specific time interval set for double tapping actions to be triggered. To turn off double tap completely, simply tap on the switch next to Double Tap Timeout.


If you prefer to keep double tap enabled but want to adjust the time interval before an action is triggered, you can do so by tapping on the Double Tap Timeout option and adjusting the slider to your desired time interval.

Step 5: Confirm Your Selection

After disabling double tap, you can exit the settings menu. Your changes will be saved automatically. Now, you can enjoy using your Android device without worrying about accidental double taps triggering unwanted actions.


Turning off double tap on your Android device can help prevent accidental actions and provide a smoother user experience. By following the simple steps outlined in this tutorial, you can easily disable double tap in just a few minutes. Remember, if you ever want to re-enable this feature or adjust the time interval, you can always revisit the accessibility settings menu.
