Screen contents visible briefly on lock screen on resolution change
Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
I am using a remote application to AnyDesk to remote access my Ubuntu
16.04 LTS 64 bit. On the application we can resize the screen and have
the resolution of the target computer scale up and down when this is
When the computer is locked on the login screen if the screen is
resized ( resolution changes ) - For a brief fraction of a second the
unlocked screen flashes and the login screen shows up again. I think
this is a security breach to be able to peek into the inside contents
even though the computer is locked.
Please feel free to close this issue if this is an already known issue
or if its already fixed in later releases.
