    idk how many have observed this, but any kind of authentication from the bellow is disabled if you use a third party app / widget to lock your device :

    Fingerprint | Trusted Face | Trusted Voice

    I have tried using multiple apps / widgets that will turn off my screen or lock the device and added it as a gesture to my nova launcher's double tap gesture. so that i get double tap to lock screen on homescreen...

    But this disables fp. I read somewhere that a tasker plugin can be used ...i tried it when i was on cm13 but that plugin actually enters the pin for you after you lock. meaning you lose security.

    using the "turn off screen" option in buttons does keep the fp enabled. So ive currently kept long press back button to lock...and fp works... but this option isnt available throuhg any settings shortcut or any other way...

    So, if anyone finds any solution please let me know!
