* Expressions like “touch screen locking” or “disable the touchscreen” meaning that we are adding an overlay over the screen, on top of the other apps, that is preventing propagation of the touch events to any apps below the overlay. More clearly we are not able to disable the hardware touching mechanism entirely, since it is not possible via 3rd party apps.
* Fingerprint is supported in API 23 (Android M) and Higher
