Public Methods

public Intent createConfirmDeviceCredentialIntent (CharSequence title, CharSequence description)

Added in API level 21

Get an intent to prompt the user to confirm credentials (pin, pattern or password) for the current user of the device. The caller is expected to launch this activity using startActivityForResult(Intent, int) and check for RESULT_OK if the user successfully completes the challenge.

Returns
  • the intent for launching the activity or null if no password is required.

public void exitKeyguardSecurely (KeyguardManager.OnKeyguardExitResult callback)

Added in API level 1

This method was deprecated in API level 13.
Use FLAG_DISMISS_KEYGUARD and/or 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. Exit the keyguard securely. The use case for this api is that, after disabling the keyguard, your app, which was granted permission to disable the keyguard and show a limited amount of information deemed safe without the user getting past the keyguard, needs to navigate to something that is not safe to view without getting past the keyguard. This will, if the keyguard is secure, bring up the unlock screen of the keyguard.

This method requires the caller to hold the permission DISABLE_KEYGUARD.

Parameters
callback Let's you know whether the operation was succesful and it is safe to launch anything that would normally be considered safe once the user has gotten past the keyguard.

public boolean inKeyguardRestrictedInputMode ()

Added in API level 1

If keyguard screen is showing or in restricted key input mode (i.e. in keyguard password emergency screen). When in such mode, certain keys, such as the Home key and the right soft keys, don't work.

Returns
  • true if in keyguard restricted input mode.
