        • double tap to lock screen(timeout so you can use fingerprint to unlock) on lg g5 does not lock just makes the screen go black.

          when I set double tap to lock for a timeout so that I can use the fingerprint to unlock, the screen just goes black. you can touch the screen and hit the home button and get back into the device without having to use fingerprints out a pin. it never actually locks. this is on an LG G5

                                  When I installed 4.7 (via a former APK), the two options, lockscreen and homescreen, reappeared. So it's clearly a regression introduced by…
