[Feature request] Emulate screen lock on Android support

My bank application, starting today, refuses to generate authentication codes for bank access and authorization if it cannot detect a lock screen mechanism. In order to use it, it is necessary to fool the Android side into believing there is a lock set. Currently, Android settings do not allow to set a screen lock.

So, no solution?

@Artur Do you remember how do you get the screen lock in android dalvik working?

@jolla : Can you please implement this feature. There are a lot apps which checking for lock screen.

Sincerely, Helge

Edit: There is no answer from @Artur, so I think there is no solution. This missing feature is a showstopper for a growing number of apps. @jolla, please implement this feature.

Use Aliendalvik Control to get into Android settings and set a screen lock there.

I tried, set screen lock is set to none and does not allow changes.

I checked mine and it works for me, but that may be because I already set it in a way I don't remember. Does your bank app's error message give you any options to go directly to settings?

No, it suggests to do it myself. Maybe you installed some screen locker apps?

Same problem. I can't set device lock on dalvik control.

Same here on XA2 (3.2.1)
