Bug: Sporadically prompting unlock screen - disabled

  • My ring stopped working completely, so I disabled security in the NFC Ring Unlock app.
    Sporadically (seems to mostly happen if I enter my unlock password incorrectly), it will prompt me with the NFC Ring Unlock screen.
    I also deleted all keys from the application and tried rebooting my phone.
    I will be uninstalling the app soon, until I get a new ring.

    HTC One (m7) - Sprint
    Android 4.4.2

    /e for anyone else in the same boat, disabling the app as administrator will stop the issue from occurring.
    Settings -> Security -> Device administrators

    Damn, that's a pain. You let anyone know apart from here?

  • The ring or the app? I sent a follow-up to my previous emails to support. I have an Elechouse pn532 that should be here today or tomorrow, so I am waiting to see if it works with it before I exchange my ring. If it works fine, I will suck up not being able to use it with my phone and just use it for my door until I get more rings.

    Ah, I was meaning the ring but that's ok. Hope your Pn532 board works well.

    Ah right, hadn't run across that one yet. My awesome HTC has too many issues to consistently run the app!

  • Disabling the app as administrator seems to have solved the issue. I'm guessing it has something to do with the app monitoring failed unlock attempts.

  • I am getting the same issue on my Samsung S3. At this point i just want to get the NFC unlock app off of my phone entirely and need the necessary steps. Can anyone assist?
