Screen Off (No Lock) is an updated version of the original and very popular (100K+ downloads) Screen Off app. According to users of the original Screen Off app, this is the ONLY app that turns off the screen WITHOUT locking it. Users have said that there are a lot of similar apps out there, but that this is the only one that works for them.
Screen Off (No Lock) solves the Android Marshmallow fingerprint issue. It turns the screen off without interfering with security, leaving fingerprint unlock still working. No password, pin, or pattern is required in addition to the fingerprint with phones like the Galaxy S7, Nexus 6P, and others. Screen Off (No Lock) is also compatible with Google Smart Lock.
Screen Off (No Lock) is re-created from the ground-up to meet modern Android standards. Updates and improvements include:
* Black screen by default (instead of padlock image)
* Full-screen immersive mode for modern phones (no menu buttons)
* The ability to move to SD card
* A new MaterialUI icon design (with higher resolution for larger phones)
* Updated Android permissions checking (see below)
Before using, you will be prompted to give Screen Off (No Lock) the ability to change your system settings. This is because Screen Off (No Lock) does not use the same mechanism as other apps do to turn off your phone. Rather than locking your phone, it blacks out your screen and puts your phone to sleep as quickly as possible. This will NOT affect your default screen timeout display settings.
