Jolla launcher security issue - unofficial version

[Security issue] Jolla launcher alpha for Android phones, unofficial version

A possible security issue in the unofficial Jolla Launcher alpha available via XDA developer forum might enable unlocking an Android phone without entering PIN

User at TJC reports that it's possible to unlock an Android phone without entering the PIN code. The issue is reported using Android phone Xiaomi MI3W, but might consider other Android phone models too

See the reported issue with the latest comments here

This problem shouldn't exist in the official version, which is available via Google Play only for the 600 accepted alpha testers. Regarding the official version, any bug reports are welcome at TJC. Please add tag "jolla-launcher" to your reports.

Any unofficial / hacked apps should be discussed at unofficial forums, not in TJC.

Jolla Launcher alpha is a launcher app designed for Android phones, giving Android users a possibility to test the user interface of Sailfish OS on their phones. The project is in alpha stage, tested by 600 Android users. Version beta is released later for wider group of testers, and hopefully after that we'll see a stable version for all Android users.
