    Without setting a Timeout, the Task can be cancelled w/o fingerprint action required. Also, fingerprint is not required if the Task simply Times out.

    I have used this and had it working great, but now that I have Android 10 it appears that it doesn't work anymore. The only thing that happens is the App shuts down after 60 seconds and i get "Denied! App will close now!" Any ideas?? Thanks!

    Can you maybe try with the Authentication Dialog action in Tasker instead?

    I've set it up as told and shown in the discription (and checked it twice), but when i open an selected app i don't get the pop-up and it does'nt work? Do i need to create a variable first for the %arbutton (because is was not in my variable list)?

    Thank you for the other version, this did ask for the permission to draw over the other apps.
    Now the pop up comes but it still doesn't work flawless
    When I use the wright fingerprint it flashes 'recognized' but the pop up closes and comes back a couple of times (3 to 4) and after the last time I'm in the app.
    But when I try a different finger it doesn't flash 'denied' and doesn't go home but I'm still in the app?
    In my notifications I get a silent notification; autotools action error, fingerprint not recognized (so it does recognize the wrong fingerprint)
    I rerun the set up step by step but it keeps working this way, maybe I'm missing something?

    Profile: Fingerprint Protection (224)
    Restore: no Notification: no
    Application: Berichten, Boxer, Authenticator...
    Enter: Fingerprint (223)
    A1: AutoTools Dialog [ Configuration:Dialog Type: Fingerprint
    Title: Authentication
    Number Of Tries: 1
    Title Alignment: Left
    Text: Please use your fingerprint to continue
    Text Size: 20
    Dim Background: true
    Top Margin: 16
    Bottom Margin: 16
    Bottom Buttons Top Margin: 16
    Bottom Buttons Bottom Margin: 16
    Cancelable: true
    Turn Screen On: true Timeout (Seconds):60 ]
    A2: If [ %atbutton ~ 2 ]
    A3: Flash [ Text:Recognized! Long:Off ]
    A4: Else
    A5: Flash [ Text:Denied! Long:Off ]
    A6: Go Home [ Page:0 ]
    A7: End If

    Thank you in advance!!

    Hmm, what if you include AutoTools in the list of apps? :)

    That solved half the problem,
    With the wright fingerprint it works as it should, but with a wrong fingerprint it still does not flash denied and the pop up closes and it doesn't go back home as it should?

    I did this and found the problem, when I rerun the task today I didn't check the continu task after error (sorry my bad!)
    But I did need the other autotools version witch did ask to write over other apps
    So now it's working like a charm!

    Many thanks for your support!!

    Kind regards, and be safe!
