The Settings application allows you to manage various parameters of your Flipper Zero. With this application, you can customize settings such as the Bluetooth connection, screen brightness, storage, and power management, as well as secure your device by setting a PIN code. Additionally, the Settings application provides you with detailed information about your device and digital pet.
You can access the Settings application by going to Main Menu -> Settings.
Let's have a look at the Settings Menu options below.
The Bluetooth LE connectivity feature allows you to pair the device with your phone with the help of the Flipper Mobile App. You can also connect your Flipper Zero to a smartphone or computer as a remote.
The Bluetooth icon helps you check the current Bluetooth connection status. The Bluetooth icon is displayed in the upper-left corner of the screen.
You can manage LCD display settings, LED brightness, sound volume, and vibrations by pressing the %left%LEFT and %right%RIGHT buttons.
Here, you can see the used and total space of the internal storage and microSD card, unmount and format the microSD card, run a benchmark to assess the microSD card's performance, and reset your Flipper Zero to the factory settings.
For additional information on microSD storage, visit MicroSD card setup.
In Power, you can see battery performance information, reboot your Flipper Zero in normal or Recovery mode, and turn your device off.
You can set quick-access applications, set a PIN code to protect your device, set keypad timeout, and enable a clock.
You can set up to 4 favorite apps for quick access right from the Desktop. To learn additional details about the Favorite App feature, visit this page.
You can set up to 4 quick-access apps for Dummy mode as well. To find out more about Dummy mode, go to this page.

The enable clock is displayed on the Desktop:
Here, you can view your digital pet's profile for details such as the unique name, appearance, mood, level, and progress.
You can also access your digital pet's passport by pressing the %right%RIGHT button while on the Desktop.
Customize your Flipper Zero system settings:
- Switch between right-handed and left-handed modes.
- Set your preferred units for measurements.
- Choose your time and date formats.
- Adjust how much detail is shown in logs.
- Enable advanced features like Debug mode and memory leak analysis.
- Disable power-saving mode, which is set as default.
Two sleep modes are available for your Flipper Zero: Default and Legacy. The Default sleep mode has a power consumption of around 1.5 mA, resulting in a longer battery life. However, you may experience device crashes while using this mode. Legacy sleep mode has a power consumption of 9 mA, leading to shorter battery life but provides more stability to your device.
You can switch to Legacy sleep mode by setting Sleep Method to Legacy.

You can filter and prioritize log messages based on their severity, making it easier to identify and address issues that may arise in your Flipper Zero. Starting with the Error log level, each log level adds more messages to be logged. Log messages are printed to the console via UART and can also be printed to the command-line interface (CLI) with the help of the log command.
The following log level options are available:
- Default: Equivalent to the Info log level.
- None: No events are logged.
- Error: Only errors are logged.
- Warning: Errors and warnings are logged.
- Info: Errors, warnings, and info messages are logged.
- Debug: Errors, warnings, info, and debug messages are logged.
- Trace: Errors, warnings, info, and debug messages are logged, as well as tracing information from various subsystems.
Enabling Debug mode provides additional debugging functionality in Sub-GHz, 125 kHz RFID, NFC, and Infrared applications, as well as new commands in CLI. For example, you can read low-frequency RFID card's RAW data by going to Main Menu -> 125 kHz RFID -> Extra Actions -> Read RAW RFID data.
Debug mode also provides access to the Serial Wire Debug (SWD) interface. If you disable Debug mode on your Flipper Zero, the SWD interface will become unavailable.
A heap trace is a log of memory allocations and deallocations that occur in your Flipper Zero. The heap trace records information about each allocation, including the size of the block of memory allocated, the address of the block of memory, and the time at which it was allocated. Heap traces are useful for debugging memory-related issues, such as memory leaks. Heap Trace log messages are printed to the console via UART.
