FINGERPRINT SENSORS AND SMARTLOCKS

Depending on your configuration, this app may need the Device Administrator permission.

To implement several (optional) features, Glimpse Notifications may need to turn off the screen. This happens with a delay imposed by Android and smart locks such as fingerprint sensors will keep working. Alternatively, the app may be registered as a device administrator. The screen is then locked immediately, but fingerprint sensors and other smart locks will no longer work.

FEATURES

• Control how long the lock screen is shown
• Double-tap to lock

• Using modern Android APIs this app is as compliant and energy efficient as possible
