I need to enable password lock due to company rules. I'm trying to determine what can be operated with the password still enabled. i.e. what's possible quickly if n a hurry. I know the camera is available, I was wondering if it is possible to launch a quick note taking app etc. from the standard lock screen (with password enabled) ?
I just found that app setting module in xposed can do exactly this! Haven't tried it but from the description it should. There's a "show when locked" option that can overlay the app on top of your lockscreen so you can fully access the app w/o unlocking. Safer than the unlock on certain wifi alternative (but hey, bypassing lock is never safe) - but this solution only works IF the app itself provide a lockscreen widget so you can access the app w/o unlocking in the first place.
