Hello. So I have a strange issue. So I’ve had a Fairphone 5 for a few days now, and configuring and tweaking it to my liking.
As far as I’m aware, you should be able to lock the screen by rubbing your finger on the fingerprint sensor. It vibrates a bit, and then the screen turns off. I say “as far as I’m aware” because that stopped working a few hours ago, and I have no idea why, to the point that I’m wondering if I made that feature up or not.
The only things that I think could cause it are as follows:
- An update to Private Compute Services I installed (I think it was released only two days ago?)
- Something in the settings that I’ve changed and need to change back.
- Something in the SystemUI Tuner (was poking around to see if
- Some annoying background Android thing. Probably due to permissions.
To be clear, the fingerprint reader still works fine as far as I can tell. I can unlock the device fine, and apps that want to use the reader can use it fine. And pressing the button itself locks the screen, it’s just a bit cumbersome because of the case I’m using.
I don’t know if it matters, but I use Nova Launcher; not sure if that controls how the screen is locked or not.
Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a setting somewhere in the options that I’ve completely missed that turns this on or off? I’d rather not have to do a factory reset.
