Screen lock & fingerprint - did I read they shouldn't be used?

Hello. Quick question (hopefully). Did I read somewhere on this forum that the screen lock and/or fingerprint should not be used? I am just getting to know /e/ OS now, and I want to make sure I heed that warning, if it was real.

Thank you!

You can use them. I’ve never heard anything to say not to!

… quite correct, but this Search might indicate where you read incorrectly! :slight_smile:

I think this is only important for the OTA upgrade of the Galaxy S9. So just in a very specific case.

Well spotted @Ludix . This is relevant for @buzzears whom I believe has a samsung s9.

@buzzears You can follow the progress of the development for OTA android version upgrades for the S9 in the weekly bulletins

Hello everyone. Busy day today, so just replying now. Yes, I am running an s9, I wish I had thought to mention that in the first place (sorry). Thank you very much for your responses, and I will have a look at the Development and Testing Updates as soon as I can.
