It would be on March 9th that Google would announce here the first version for programmers of its Android P. As a leading publication we had the opportunity to present here the main visual changes of the next version of the operating system. Now, we know that LineageOS 15.1 will bring one of the best functions of this version, Lockdown.
Especially for those who value the security of their mobile device Lockdown will be one of the best features of Android P. This is of course if we exclude the new ” Battery Saver Mode “. Note that in the coming months we will still know all these versions “Preview” before the final version, complete.
Anyway, it was with the 1st Developer Preview that we got to know the new Settings, Quick Settings, Notification Panel and Launcher design. What’s more, we are getting to know a new security option. This will be very useful for any and all use of an Android smartphone.
It’s called Lockdown and will allow the user to lock their smartphone, preventing themselves from being unlocked with the fingerprint. Incidentally, it also prevents unblocking with any biometric sensor. This is an important security enhancement that will now be available to users through LineageOS 15.1.
