Make pattern visible

If a screen lock with thePatternunlock method is activatedon theOnePlus smartphone, the track left behind is displayed visibly while entering or drawing the pattern.

This could lead to the pattern being spied out, which in turn could compromise the security of your own data, such as stored documents, contacts, photos or videos.

The visibility of the unlock pattern can be (de)activated at any time in order not to endanger privacy.
