poor lock screen security

 Although I have set the fingerprint lock and pin to secure my phone, but after I switch on my phone, the phone can unlock by sliding the screen, instead of unlock by fingerprint and pin nunber. I hope Sony Mobile can improve this security system.

If you already set your phone to have a fingerprint along with PIN, there's no way that you can bypass that or disable it unless you disable it yourself, or at least set some exceptions in Smart Lock options.

 

Go to Settings -> Lock screen & security -> Smart Lock -> confirm your security -> check every option that you don't have it enabled.

Re: poor lock screen security

It's either location smart lock or Bluetooth smart lock based on the connected Bluetooth device.

Screen unlocks with swipe despite other method set.

I've set screen unlock to other methods such as pin and pattern, but once I press power button, it still allows me to swipe to unlock, essentially offering me zero protection whatsoever.

Why don't you fix this security issue? It's absolutely not possible to lock fingerpirnt unlocking... Nice way how Sony ruins security.
