Questions:

In my application, I need to lock and unlock phone. I searched for it, I found many answers, I tried them but no one is working.

I need to unlock phone on onCreate() and lock phone again while I’m finishing my activity.

Do you guys know any method to do the same?

Thanks friends.

EDIT:

Some links, that I have tried are:

Do This:

window.addFlags(LayoutParams.FLAG_DISMISS_KEYGUARD);
window.addFlags(LayoutParams.FLAG_SHOW_WHEN_LOCKED);
window.addFlags(LayoutParams.FLAG_TURN_SCREEN_ON);

import following

import android.view.Window;
import android.view.WindowManager.LayoutParams;

it solved my problem ,rate it up:-)))

Answer:

As of API 27, FLAG_SHOW_WHEN_LOCKED and FLAG_TURN_SCREEN_ON were deprecated. Instead use this in the Manifest

<activity
    android:name=".MyActivity"
    android:turnScreenOn="true"
    android:showWhenLocked="true"/>

Or, for general usage, in your activity:

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.O_MR1) {
        setTurnScreenOn(true);
        setShowWhenLocked(true);
    } else {
        Window window = getWindow();
        window.addFlags(LayoutParams.FLAG_SHOW_WHEN_LOCKED);
        window.addFlags(LayoutParams.FLAG_TURN_SCREEN_ON);
    }
}

Answer:

Try this…

@Override
        protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
            super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
            getWindow().addFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_DISMISS_KEYGUARD);
                    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
    }

    @Override
        protected void onPause() {
            super.onPause();
            getWindow().clearFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_DISMISS_KEYGUARD);


        }
