As title says, there is now a camera quick access from the lock screen. No password/pin needed. Just swipe and click away.
Anyone see any options for turning this feature off? I've seen nothing in security or camera settings.
After turning on the camera with the camera shortcut, you can only take photos and see the photos you just took, and you can't see other photos on the user's phone.
If you want to turn on the camera and need a password, try adding the camera to the app lock.
Totally understand, but... You don't work in my office. While I was dealing with a customer issue, my coworkers grabbed my locked phone and took nearly 400 photos. Trying to figure out how to kill the shortcut so this doesn't happen again.
The camera shortcut in Lock Screen cannot be cancelled, although many people have mentioned similar suggestions before.
That sounds so terrible I might legitimately complain to HR about it.
I hear you on the opt out request for this feature, I'm passing it on to the software team.
For me also my friends are taking photos which i don't like so implement this in next update
Thank you for your reply.
I agree, I've just got my new zenphone 6 up and running and I'm hugely disappointed that the camera is accessible without security access to the phone. Especially since the camera is a delicate moving part in this device. (I also work on an office of trigger happy clowns)
Try the second method if it works on ZF6.
We cannot use the first method, because ASUS deliberately cut this options.
Another workaround by installing special app:
With this app you can add a widget on your homescreen that blocks/unblocks the Camera. If you have the camera blocked, then the camera icon does not even show on your lock screen.
Of course, if you prefer such a camera security then you have one extra click to take a picture.
Beware: You need PRO version for 24/7 protection coverage and no ads. The free version is turned off between 8-10PM.
All three phones I've had recently have had this stupid flaw that lets anybody and their cousin's goat take a bunch of pictures without unlocking the phone. If this is possible to remove, please make it a priority. It's a security issue when somebody can DoS your Google account by exceeding your storage quota.
I passed this to the software team as a suggestion back in November, but I will flag it again.
