The "Disable screen lock" setting stopped working recently

Hi

3 days ago appeared a problem - the "Disable screen lock" setting stopped working. Updates Locus and MUI did not come recently, the any settings did not change. But a week ago everything worked well. (Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime + Locus Pro)

I tried friend's phone with Redmi 3 to put Locus Free - also it does not work. What could have happened? Temporarily switched off the screen lock on the phone.

Good day Dmitry,

are you using insecure (just swipe to unlock) screen lock and latest 3.24.x version of Locus Map app?

If you use any of possible secure screen locks then functionality is not guaranteed and works from device to device.

Good day, Menion

I used screen lock by fingerprint, and the latest Locus Pro.

Yes, i've read in manual that this functionality is not guaranteed, but it worked well a week ago. So, I was hoping that someone else came across this problem and solved it :)

Good day,

because latest Locus Map update was around 5 weeks back, it is probably not caused by any change in Locus Map code. Also as I remember, we did not touch this functionality for months. Maybe some other users will have any tip, unfortunately I personally have no idea why this may happen, sorry.

Found! - for MIUI should be set "Show on Lockscreen" for Locus app, in my case it was disabled (don't know why)


Mark please as solved
