I found out that CM loses often its setting about the visibility of security dots in the lock screen. This is frustrating because I am using 6x6 net with a difficult pattern. It is challenging to pass the login. Cases where I have seen that CM forgets the setting

  1. Install any app of unknown sources etc Amazon underground
  2. Leave the setting of unknown sources open

I managed to pass the code without the dots after 20 attempts. The phone had reseted the setting Show pattern dots. Other changes in the phone

  • I see only the dot pattern in the lock screen, nothing else; before, I saw Camera and Phone at the bottom bar in Fig. 1

Fig. 1 Lock Screen now, Fig. 2 Settings in Lock Screen View 1, Fig. 3 Settings in Lock Screen View 2

Phone: Oneplus 2
OS: Cyanogenmod 13

  • I am just curious why not use FP instead of pattern? – Bálint Babics Aug 23 '16 at 8:08
  • FP is fingerprint. I do not want to use it. It is less secure. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Aug 23 '16 at 8:09
