I’d like to
disable/delay the lock screen programmatically. In looking into this,
KeyguardManager is depreciated/doesn’t work consistently,
FLAG_DISMISS_KEYGUARD is not an option because I want to do this in the background, I don’t want to use WakeLock for battery reasons, Device Administration does not appear to be capable of this and, while
SCREEN_OFF_TIMEOUT is available to control when the screen sleeps, I was unable to find a similar timeout for the screen lock.
What am I missing here? Thanks.
try this, it will keep awake the screen/ display , as long as the activity is on top.
Also this does not require any permission in manifest.
the answer of @nandeesh is working but it’s deprecated , to disable lock screen use flags :
Did you try this?
KeyguardManager keyguardManager = (KeyguardManager)getSystemService(Activity.KEYGUARD_SERVICE); KeyguardLock lock = keyguardManager.newKeyguardLock(KEYGUARD_SERVICE); lock.disableKeyguard();
You can disable the keyguard using this.
