It is possible to use the camera without unlocking the Phone (I am using Lineage OS 14.1 on Samsung S4)

But now I would also like to use the Lineage OS Recorder App without unlocking. I often use it for short notices to myself and its really a pain to always type my unlock code for 5 seconds of recording...

Is there a way to use the Recorder App that way? Or is there any other app on fdroid to do so?

  • Yes. You can start recording and lock the phone. Recording be continued without pause/stop

  • Hmmm. Okay. Try use Termux application. Install it + termux api. Then you can take a photo from.script termux-camera-photo. Not requires root access.
