Hi experts, sorry if this has been asked before. I would like to use Tasker to check if my phone is locked and trigger the revoke permission for camera in WhatsApp to protect my pop up camera from accidental opening during incoming WhatsApp video call. Attached is my created xml and thus far, not working. Any experts can take a look and see what went wrong

Update :finally working after some tweak to the xml.

i can see you are using poco f2 as well the popup camera is giving me headache..., i've set the same display state off then trigger the xml task, but after i locked my screen and check the permission, it's still "Allow", any other settings that i miss out?



thanks



Jeff
How can you check the permission when your screen is locked? Why don't you make a test WhatsApp call and see if your camera pops up? You need to grant permissions to tasker for it to be able to work properly.

Run the task manually and see if it changes the permission, if not, then there is something wrong with your task...
