Is it possible to hide the visual feedback on the PIN entry on the Android stock lock screen?
The feedback makes it pretty easy for anybody standing near to watch the PIN:
I know that it is possible to disable the feedback when using a pattern, and I read tips that the pattern setting would also apply to the PIN entry, but I tried that and it didn’t work.
I usually use the finger print sensor to unlock the phone, but on the rare occasions when it asks for the PIN (“for security”) I always wonder why anyone would design a PIN entry screen like this.
I don’t know if it matters, I’m using a bq Aquaris X. The Aquaris X5 I used before that had the same behavior (with Android 7), the HTC One before that did not (IIRC .. it’s been a while).
