How do I screen off with motorola guestures? Or is there any app without sacrificing our privacy?

2020-09-28, 13:18 PM

I am struggling to screen lock without button press (to save its life). Does anyone has a solution? I don't want to use third party software where I have to sacrifice my privacy (like accessing photos, documents, storage, etc.

 

Thanks,

SP

Hello, and thanks for taking the time to post your question. As far as Moto Actions and stock gestures, there is no way to do this. You would have to rely on 3rd party apps. Maybe another user has some suggestions for 3rd party apps that work well for this. I will however pass your feedback along for future consideration. What kind of gesture would you be looking to perform that you think would work well?

Thanks for considering my suggestion. I can wave "palm" twice, then the screen gets locked. Any other gesture is fine to save the buttons life. I like "twisting" to get the camera on!

There's a "so called" workaround

 

Set shorter screen timeout + attention display (screen stays on when you're looking at it)

This is a great suggestion, I completely forgot about Attentive Display. You can find that setting here (Settings > Display > Advanced > Attentive Display).

I use Nova Prime launcher which comes with eleven customisable gesture commands, one of which I use for screen lock. Nova has no impact on data privacy.
