For turning on the gesture, you should head on to Settings >> Display >> turn on “double tap to wake”. This is the basic path to turn on this gesture. If you wouldn’t find this gesture on your device, then either your device doesn’t have this feature or you can comment along with your device model to crosscheck it.

If your device doesn’t have this Double tap to wake feature, then I will recommend you to flash any custom ROM on your device which has that gesture feature. And Keep your device updated to the latest and see if this is available on your device.

3.) Use Screen timeout / Sleep feature

You should use the sleep feature which will automatically turn off the display and lock your device when you didn’t use it for a particular period of time.

I will recommend you to set that option for 1 minute. I know this is a very small time period but this really worth it. Try it once!
