Questions and Answers

How do I unlock my phone with TalkBack enabled?

I enabled TalkBack then locked my phone but now all I can access is my lock screen. It tells me to double tap then swipe my screen but it does not open when I do this. Instead, it simply reads all the info on my lock-screen. Time, date, temperature etc.

Remove the battery to soft reset the device. If this still does not refresh your screen then the next step is to hard reset the device. This will remove the CM security app. There is no need for a third party app when it comes to locking your device and these fail on a regular basis.
