Battery saver disables my screen lock optins
« on: February 28, 2017, 10:55:37 PM »
on my Alcatel Idol 4 Avast battery saver disables my screen lock options 'none' and 'swipe' even though it doesn't have admin access, doesn't say it does anywhere in the app, and anti-theft and avast security don't.

It does sound related.
I suggest to have a look at the Alcatel websiste and Android sites to see if there are people with the same problem.

Sounds to me something custom that Alcatel has put on that phone.
