Off without lock

Everyone
23

'Off without lock' is a simple tool to turn off the screen without locking.
Most apps for screen-off use a locking mechanism that will force the fingerprint scanner to ask for unlocking.
'Off without lock' does not lock, but temporarily reduces the sleep timeout to its minimum value.
This minimum value is device dependent, usually a few seconds.
'Off without lock' has no user interface and completely terminates as soon as the screen is off.

Some launchers (like Apex) allow you to define gestures to launch an app. You can then turn off the screen with, for instance, a double tap.
If you are using a flip case, the free app 'Proxi - proximity app launcher' can use 'Off without lock' to automatically turn off the screen. These two apps work nicely together in that the turning off is canceled when the cover is lifted again before the screen is really off.

Note: If you have a rooted device and grant superuser permission, 'Off without lock' can turn off the screen immediately. If you do not grant superuser permission, the sleep timeout method will be used.

WRITE_SETTINGS: temporarily change the sleep timeout (non-root)

Privacy statement
