KeyguardManager.KeyguardLock

   ↳ android.app.KeyguardManager.KeyguardLock


This class was deprecated in API level 13.
Use WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_DISMISS_KEYGUARD and/or WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_SHOW_WHEN_LOCKED instead; this allows you to seamlessly hide the keyguard as your application moves in and out of the foreground and does not require that any special permissions be requested. Handle returned by KeyguardManager.newKeyguardLock(String) that allows you to disable / reenable the keyguard.

A good place to call this is from Activity.onResume() Note: This call has no effect while any DevicePolicyManager is enabled that requires a password.

Requires the DISABLE_KEYGUARD permission.
