How to unlock my go launcher lock screen when TalkBack is enabled?

I am using Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and go launcher as my lock screen. I accidentally enabled "TalkBack explore by touch" now I don't know how to unlock my screen. it says "slide down to kill task" I will slide it down but yellow lines on the side like box are appearing

Was this helpful? Yes | No

"Explore by touch" actually is a function where you drag your finger on the screen and it gives you a description of every item that you hover on to.

If it tells you to slide down, you have to pay attention whether you have to do it only on top of the particular application that you are using or this applies to the entire screen.

My mobile hung when I was using CM security?

When I was using CM security I saw enabling the location and call when my phone gets lost so I tried it when I open it when I received the call and it asked me to give the phone number so we can contact when it gets lost so even I tried it, this is what happened

Was this helpful? Yes | No

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.
