I think going back to the previous version would fix it. But the one prior to the current version had proximity sensor issues

Hi,

This is a member of the Viber R&D Team.

@Bresch - Thanks for reporting your issue...
We are continuously working on updates, we hope the next update will fix this issue too.
One question, can you please tell us if this issue is unique only to Viber or is it relevant to other apps too?

Thanks,

It is unique to viber. I've never had anything else unlock the screen...Especially not when you have the screen locked with a code or password.

Tested the update and still screen unlocks despite being unchecked in the settings. Nice work on being able to use system notifications though

Thanks for responding Viber team. I have already sent a report since Oct 4 which unfortunately doesn't have any concrete response. In fact, here's a screenshot of it tagged closed.



It would be nice to look at it as I've explained before that not only did I experience it on jellybean but also on another phone running gingerbread

@thephantom -

Thank you for the info.
There might have been some confusion there - "Closed" doesn't mean we stopped handling the problem, it merely means that it has been transferred departments within our own company.

However, I will make sure that this issue is brought up in our upcoming meetings and we will see what can be done to reproduce it here in our labs.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Wow. Gotta hand it to you. After posting in a public forum, I got an email update all of a sudden. Whereas before, it took weeks and even months for a response. I guess it's better to post issues here

what's the point with having the permission to unlock screen anyway? its totally unnecessary! Why would you EVER want your phone waking up?
If its in your hand, you just unlock it yourself.
If its in your pocked, you NEVER want it to unlock.

Simply just strip the app of the permission please..this is not iOS. We don't want our phones getting lit up..
