Lockscreen Policy

[App] Lockscreen Policy

Lockscreen PolicyLockscreen Policy : Disable widgets and/or camera access on the lockscreen under Android 4.2. Reduces the occurrence of glowing rectangle animations at edges when screen is turned on.

(Formerly Lockscreen Policy Features  )

1) Run application
2) Make selections, and press activate
3) In the ‘Activate device administrator’ screen, choose ‘Activate’
4) Turn off undesired features using the toggle switches. Changes are made instantly. Make sure your lockscreen is enabled to see the results.

Uninstall Lockscreen Policy :
To uninstall, uncheck the application from the ‘Device Administrator’ list under ‘Security’ in your ‘Settings’ application on your device.


Enabling this will force the lockscreen to use a ‘default fallback widget’. On Google builds, the default is the stock DeskClock digital clock widget (with bold-hour style). This behavior cannot be changed.

Here is a XDA workaround to disable the digital clock widget of DeskClock to force the lockscreen to use the frameworks built-in clock (with thin-hour style). Root shell access is required (hzzp://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=34561693&postcount=35).

One more option is to disable your system ‘DeskClock’ and reinstalling a replacement alarm app. This will also make the default clock widget fallback to the thin-hour clock.

Note that this alternate thin-hour clock does not launch DeskClock on tap, and does not display world clocks if expanded, but will still display alarm status.

The music controls will still appear as a new page when active, even with the lockscreen policies in place. Google would have to update the API to control that.

I do not collect any personal information with this completely free application.

No permissions other than device administrator required.

Additional Notes:

Allowing widgets and/or camera access might be a security concern for some users, because they can be accessed before unlocking the device. This application is a workaround for that, at the cost of removing those features.

This application maintains device administration policies for the lockscreen, introduced in Android 4.2.

Lockscreen Policy user reviews :

This app completely removes the horrible flashing which indicates the lockscreen widgets. I have been looking for a solution for this since I got 4.2. Glad someone with more talent than I could sort this out. Awesome app

If only it would allow other clock widgets rather that p.o.s half bold font, i would be totally happy.
