Pressing the power button to wake up the display reveals the last used app (or more generally the last screen, e.g. lockscreen with time from last wake up) for a brief moment before the lock screen appears.

I'm using a Sony Xperia XA2 with SFOS3 Free. Can someone test this on their XA2 with current Sailfish and confirm that this is the case for them as well? I reckon that this is a general bug which breaches privacy guidelines.

Hello, I am using (testing) the XA2 with free SFOS and noticed this exactly as you have described. But I could see exactly witch screen or app appeared. Thanks for reporting.

@chris7chris Hi, this problem seems to be known and was listed in the release notes ( https://together.jolla.com/question/191509/release-notes-300-lemmenjoki/#191509-known-issues-specific-to-xperia-xa2 ). I've closed the question as it seems Jolla knows about the problem and are trying to fix it. :)

That's actually a known issue and has been listed as such in the release notes:

And as always I feel like they should overhaul the search function of together.jolla.com ... I've been searching for this for 10 minutes throughout the forum and after not finding anything, I've decided to create this bug report.

Checking the release notes however... That's an idea that didn't even occur to me. :D Thanks for answering.
