Bank Millenium blocks biometric login because my phone does not pass Safety Net CTS (unlocked bootloader). Magisk + Hide Prop config + hiding magisk app fixed it for me.

It's ridiculous because:

- NFC still works
- i have up to date Android and security fixes

@siloam @TeddyDD o à propos Chin i banków, to dla wielu bankowych instytucji — smartfon z toną chińskiego bloatware'u jest bezpieczniejszy od czystego LineageOSa

@arek
Tak, to też paranoja. Albo starsza wersja Androida ale z zablokowanym bootloaderem
@siloam

@TeddyDD same story in my case, I've installed Magisk, Hide Prop config module and Universal SafetyNet Fix module. Then, I've hidden Magisk and changed my keys for SafetyNet. After that, I can log in application by biometry, but still I can't use BLIK NFC payments…

I suppose that I was marked by mBank to some blocked user list. I will try to adjust my phone to BLIK NFC payments after the updating process to Lineage 19.1.

Yep, I agree, it's ridiculous.

@arek @TeddyDD I would like to have a FOSS OS on my phone, but things like that discourage me every time. I know that if I flash new OS, some applications won't like it.

It's sad that if you want something else, than stock software on your device, you are being treated like a criminal. Same as with games and anti-cheat software on Linux. But while Steamdeck is changing things for gaming, I don't see any change coming for smartphones.

@Ganderonus @TeddyDD you can change OS in your desktop, you can have root permissions on your desktop, but not on your phone, it's not fair

@Ganderonus
In my case it's not even about FOSS, my phone is five years old and unsupported by the vendor. Lineage is the only way to get security patches.

Honestly I don't know what I'll do when I can't use lineage anymore. I'll probably buy iphone.

@arek
Btw I had to delete app data and activate it again before it started working again

@TeddyDD I have trided different versions, clearing cache and app data, updating app, nothing works

@TeddyDD @arek

Huawei phone with Android 7 not patched for 5 years: Good!

Phone with latest security fixes and mostly open-source rom you flashed and checked yourself: Alarm!

@TeddyDD @arek Credit Agricole doesn’t allow me to open its app while using offline keyboard, but it’s okay with Gboard…
