Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] This application relates to the field of terminal application, and in particular, to a lock screen interface processing method and a terminal.

BACKGROUND



[0002] As the mobile communications industry develops and people's living standards improve, smart terminal devices have become indispensable devices in people's daily lives, work, and study. Smart terminals are increasingly highly configured, and become a service platform for new media, e-commerce, and information, and an important hub for Internet resources, mobile network resources, and environmental interaction resources. Therefore, an increasing quantity of personal information is stored on a smart terminal, such as a call/SMS message record, a social network account and password, a third-party payment account and password, and a network bank account and password.

[0003] To protect personal information and privacy, avoid an unintentional operation, or save power, smart terminals generally have a screen lock function. Such a terminal automatically locks a screen when there is no operation on the terminal in a specified period. After the screen is locked, the screen needs to be unlocked if the terminal needs to be used again. Commonly used unlocking manners include password unlocking, pattern unlocking, and fingerprint unlocking. For example, for pattern unlocking, a user presets an unlocking pattern on a terminal; and after a screen of the terminal is locked, the user can unlock the screen of the terminal by entering the unlocking pattern on a lock screen interface, to enter a home screen or another interface of the terminal.

[0004] For security reasons, when a quantity of consecutive unlocking failures encountered by the user within a particular period reaches a preset value, the terminal enters a security mode, to be specific, carrying out a preset security policy. The preset security policy includes, for example, locking the terminal for S seconds, which means that the user cannot unlock the terminal within the next S seconds, and erasing data for the terminal and resetting the terminal to factory settings.

SUMMARY



[0005] Embodiments of this application provide a lock screen interface processing method, to improve user experience.

[0006] In view of this, a first aspect of this application provides a lock screen interface processing method. The method includes: when a terminal is in a screen locked state, presenting a lock screen interface on a screen; obtaining, by the terminal, a touch operation (that is, an unlocking operation) performed in the lock screen interface and/or a fingerprint recognition area; when determining, based on the operation, that a quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, presenting, by the terminal, a prompt interface, where the prompt interface is used to prompt a user to enter a preset operation; and when the user enters the preset operation in the prompt interface, obtaining, by the terminal, the preset operation, and presenting, by the terminal, the lock screen interface, where
M is less than N, and N is a quantity of unlocking failures that triggers a security mode.

[0007] It should be noted that in this embodiment, the preset operation is an operation that requires particular input logic for implementation, which means that a particular law and rule of thinking are required for entering the operation, and the preset operation is an operation that can be implemented only by a conscious behavior generated through analysis. The fingerprint recognition area is an area capable of identifying fingerprint information.

[0008] In this embodiment of this application, when the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal may display the prompt interface to prompt the user to enter the preset operation. The preset operation is an operation that requires particular input logic for implementation and is a confirming operation triggered by a conscious behavior of the user. Therefore, an accidental touch behavior generated by an object or in another situation cannot trigger the preset operation. This can prevent an accidental touch operation from triggering the security mode, and avoid the following problems: without consciousness of the user, the terminal is locked, data on the terminal is erased, the terminal is reset to factory settings, and the like. In this way, user experience is improved.

[0009] With reference to the first aspect of this application, in a first implementation of the first aspect of this application, after the presenting, by the terminal, a prompt interface, the following operations may be further performed:
obtaining, by the terminal, an operation different from the preset operation, and presenting the prompt interface. To be specific, the terminal closes the prompt interface only when the user of the terminal triggers the preset operation based on the prompt interface; if the user of the terminal does not trigger the preset operation, the terminal always presents the prompt interface or continues presenting the prompt interface.

[0010] With reference to the first aspect of this application, in a second implementation of the first aspect of this application, the unlocking operation obtained by the terminal includes at least one accidental touch operation, and the accidental touch operation is a touch operation in an accidental touch scenario.

[0011] In this embodiment of this application, the terminal presents the prompt interface only when obtaining at least one accidental touch operation, that is, the terminal does not present the prompt interface when the user normally unlocks the screen without an accidental touch operation. This prevents the prompt interface from affecting the normally unlocking user. In this way, user experience is improved.

[0012] With reference to the second implementation of the first aspect of this application, in a third implementation of the first aspect of this application, the lock screen interface presented by the terminal is a pattern unlocking interface; and the touch operation in the accidental touch scenario includes at least one of the following:

a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch duration is less than a first threshold;

a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch track length is less than a second threshold;

a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and that has more than one touch point; and

a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch point coordinates include coordinates in an accidental touch area.



[0013] It should be understood that the pattern unlocking interface is an interface that requires the user to slide to unlock the screen, and the interface may include or may not include information prompting the user to slide to unlock the screen.

[0014] This embodiment of this application provides a plurality of methods for identifying the accidental touch operation, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0015] With reference to the second implementation of the first aspect of this application, in a fourth implementation of the first aspect of this application, the lock screen interface presented by the terminal is a password unlocking interface; and the touch operation in the accidental touch scenario includes at least one of the following:

a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and whose touch duration is greater than a third threshold;

a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and whose touch track length is less than a third threshold;

a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and that has more than one touch point; and

a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and whose touch point coordinates include coordinates in an accidental touch area.



[0016] It should be understood that the password unlocking interface is an interface that requires the user to use a password to unlock the screen, and the interface may include or may not include information prompting the user to enter the password.

[0017] This embodiment of this application provides a plurality of methods for identifying the accidental touch operation, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0018] With reference to the second implementation of the first aspect of this application, in a fifth implementation of the first aspect of this application, the lock screen interface presented by the terminal is a password unlocking interface; and the touch operation in the accidental touch scenario includes at least one of the following:

a touch operation that is performed in a fingerprint recognition area and whose touch duration is greater than a fifth threshold; and

a touch operation that has a touch point in a non-fingerprint-recognition area.



[0019] It should be understood that the fingerprint unlocking interface is an interface that requires the user to enter fingerprint information to unlock the screen, and the interface may include or may not include information prompting the user to enter a fingerprint.

[0020] This embodiment of this application provides a plurality of methods for identifying the accidental touch operation, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0021] With reference to any one of the first aspect of this application, or the first to the fifth implementations of the first aspect, in a sixth implementation of the first aspect of this application, the preset operation is a sliding operation corresponding to preset sliding information, and the preset sliding information includes at least one of the following: a preset sliding start point, a preset sliding end point, a preset sliding track, preset sliding duration, and a preset sliding length. In other words, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to enter the sliding operation corresponding to the preset sliding information, the preset operation entered by the user is the sliding operation, and the sliding operation is corresponding to at least one of the following types of sliding information: the preset sliding start point, the preset sliding end point, the preset sliding track, the preset sliding duration, and the preset sliding length.

[0022] This embodiment of this application provides a specific presentation manner of the prompt interface, thereby improving implementability of the solution.

[0023] With reference to any one of the first aspect of this application, or the first to the fifth implementations of the first aspect, in a seventh implementation of the first aspect of this application, the preset operation is a tap operation corresponding to preset tap information, and the preset tap information includes at least one of the following: a preset tap position, preset tap duration, and a preset tap order.

[0024] This embodiment of this application provides another specific presentation manner of the prompt interface, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0025] With reference to any one of the first aspect of this application, or the first to the fifth implementations of the first aspect, in an eighth implementation of the first aspect of this application, the preset operation is sliding a specific element to a preset position. In other words, the preset operation entered by the user is sliding the specific element to the preset position.

[0026] This embodiment of this application provides another specific presentation manner of the prompt interface, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0027] With reference to any one of the first aspect of this application, or the first to the fifth implementations of the first aspect, in a ninth implementation of the first aspect of this application, the prompt interface may specifically prompt the user to slide along any track from a pressing point in the prompt interface; or
prompt the user to slide along a specific track from a pressing point in the prompt interface; or
prompt the user to slide, in an order indicated by arrows, from a first pressing point to a second pressing point and then to a third pressing point; or

prompt the user to shake the terminal to make a specific element in the prompt interface move to a specific position in the prompt interface.

[0028] This embodiment of this application provides a plurality of specific presentation manners of the prompt interface, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0029] With reference to any one of the first aspect of this application, or the first to the ninth implementations of the first aspect, in a tenth implementation of the first aspect of this application, when the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal further gives an alert when presenting the prompt interface.

[0030] In this embodiment of this application, the terminal may give the alert, to indicate that the quantity of unlocking failures of the terminal reaches N. Therefore, in an accidental touch scenario, the user can know, in a timely manner, that an accidental touch causes an unlocking failure, so that the user can prevent, in a timely manner, an accidental touch operation performed in the accidental touch scenario. This prevents problems such as terminal locking and data erasing caused by the accidental touch operation. In this way, user experience is improved.

[0031] With reference to the tenth implementation of the first aspect of this application, in an eleventh implementation of the first aspect of this application, the alert may include at least one of the following: ringing, vibration, light flashing, screen-on, and a voice alert.

[0032] This application provides a plurality of alert manners, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0034] It should be noted that in this embodiment, the fingerprint recognition area is an area capable of identifying fingerprint information.

[0035] It should be further noted that in this embodiment, the alert given by the terminal continues until the terminal obtains the stop instruction.

[0036] In this embodiment of this application, when the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal may give the alert, to indicate that the quantity of unlocking failures of the terminal reaches N. Therefore, in an accidental touch scenario, the user can know, in a timely manner, that an accidental touch causes an unlocking failure.

[0037] With reference to the second aspect of this application, in a first implementation of the second aspect of this application, when the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal may further display a prompt interface when giving the alert, where the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to enter a preset operation, and the preset operation is the operation that triggers the stop instruction.

[0038] In this application, when the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal may further display the prompt interface when giving the alert, thereby preventing a further accidental touch operation in an accidental touch environment.

[0039] With reference to the first or the second implementation of the second aspect of this application, in a third implementation of the second aspect of this application, the alert may include at least one of the following: ringing, vibration, light flashing, screen-on, and a voice alert.

[0042] In this embodiment of this application, the terminal presents the prompt interface only when obtaining at least one accidental touch operation, that is, no alert is given when the user normally unlocks the screen without an accidental touch operation. This prevents the prompt interface from affecting the normally unlocking user. In this way, user experience is improved.

[0043] With reference to the fourth implementation of the second aspect of this application, in a fifth implementation of the second aspect of this application, the lock screen interface presented by the terminal is a pattern unlocking interface; and the unlocking operation in the accidental touch scenario includes at least one of the following:

a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch duration is less than a first threshold;

a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch track length is less than a second threshold;

a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and that has more than one touch point; and

a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch point coordinates include coordinates in an accidental touch area.



[0044] It should be understood that the pattern unlocking interface is an interface that requires the user to slide to unlock the screen, and the interface may include or may not include information prompting the user to slide to unlock the screen.

[0045] This embodiment of this application provides a plurality of methods for identifying the accidental touch operation, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0046] With reference to the fourth implementation of the second aspect of this application, in a sixth implementation of the second aspect of this application, the lock screen interface presented by the terminal is a password unlocking interface; and the touch operation in the accidental touch scenario includes at least one of the following:

a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and whose touch duration is greater than a third threshold;

a touch operation that is performed in a fingerprint recognition area and whose touch duration is greater than a fifth threshold; and

a touch operation that has a touch point in a non-fingerprint-recognition area.



[0050] It should be understood that the fingerprint unlocking interface is an interface that requires the user to enter fingerprint information to unlock the screen, and the interface may include or may not include information prompting the user to enter a fingerprint.

[0051] This embodiment of this application provides a plurality of methods for identifying the accidental touch operation, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0052] A third aspect of this application provides another lock screen interface processing method. The method includes:

[0053] It should be understood that the accidental touch scenario is a scenario in which an unintentional unlocking operation easily occurs, the unintentional unlocking operation is a touch operation not intended to unlock the terminal, and the operation related to the security mode is used to reduce impact of the touch operation in the accidental touch scenario on the security mode.

[0054] In this embodiment of this application, the terminal identifies the touch operation performed in the lock screen interface and/or the fingerprint input area, to determine a touch operation that is an unintentional operation, thereby providing a basis for the terminal to determine a current scenario of the terminal, and determining whether the terminal needs to enter the security mode. This can avoid the following problems: without consciousness of a user, the terminal is locked, data on the terminal is erased, the terminal is reset to factory settings, and the like. In this way, user experience is improved.

[0055] With reference to the third aspect of this application, in a first implementation of the third aspect of this application, the performing, by the terminal, an operation related to a security mode is specifically: skipping responding to the touch operation; or ignoring an unlocking failure caused by the touch operation; or increasing a quantity of unlocking failures that triggers the security mode; or reducing locking duration in the security mode corresponding to the touch operation; or enabling an anti-accidental-touch mode; or displaying a prompt interface used to prompt the user to enter a preset operation; or giving an alert.

[0056] It should be noted that the ignoring an unlocking failure caused by the touch operation means that this unlocking failure is not added as a statistical sample to a quantity of consecutive unlocking failures.

[0057] The locking duration in the security mode is a time length for which the terminal is locked after the terminal enters the security mode.

[0058] The anti-accidental-touch mode is used to prevent an unintentional operation on the terminal, and may be specifically: displaying an inoperable interface on a screen or blocking all operations performed in an interface.

[0059] The alert given by the terminal may include at least one of the following: ringing, vibration, a voice alert, screen-on, light flashing, and music.

[0060] In this embodiment of this application, when the terminal is in the accidental touch scenario, a plurality of measures may be taken to reduce impact of the touch operation on the security mode, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0061] With reference to the third aspect of this application or the first implementation of the third aspect, in a second implementation of the third aspect of this application, the lock screen interface is a pattern unlocking interface; and

[0062] It should be noted that the accidental touch area is an area excluding an unlocking sensing key. The area may be delimited, or may be automatically identified by the terminal.

[0063] This application provides a plurality of manners of determining that the terminal is in the accidental touch scenario, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0064] With reference to the third aspect of this application or the first implementation of the third aspect, in a third implementation of the third aspect of this application, the lock screen interface is a password unlocking interface; and

In this way, user experience is improved.

DESCRIPTION OF EMBODIMENTS



[0115] The following describes technical solutions in the embodiments of this application with reference to accompanying drawings in the embodiments of this application. Apparently, the described embodiments are merely some rather than all of the embodiments of this application.

[0116] In the specification, claims, and accompanying drawings of this application, the terms "first", "second", "third", "fourth", and so on (if any) are intended to distinguish between similar objects but do not necessarily indicate a specific order or sequence. It should be understood that data used in such a way may be interchanged in proper circumstances, so that the embodiments described herein can be implemented in other orders than the order illustrated or described herein. Moreover, the terms "include" and "contain" and any variants thereof intend to cover non-exclusive inclusion, for example, a process, method, system, product, or device that includes a series of steps or units is not necessarily limited to those steps or units expressly listed, but may include other steps or units that are not expressly listed or that are inherent to such a process, method, product, or device.

[0117] A security mode ensures information security, but also troubles a user to some extent. An unconscious behavioral touch of a user that happens, for example, when a terminal is in a backpack or a pocket or when a baby is unintendedly playing with a terminal may generate some touch operations on the terminal, and these touch operations may trigger an unlocking behavior for a plurality of times, and consequently trigger carrying out of a security policy. This troubles the user. For example, the terminal is locked for S seconds, and as a result, the user cannot unlock the terminal for normal use in a specific period. For another example, data on the terminal is erased, and as a result, the user loses important data. User experience is greatly degraded.

[0118] In view of the foregoing situation, the embodiments of this application provide a lock screen interface processing method and a terminal, to prevent a data loss caused by an accidental touch and improve user experience.

[0119] To facilitate understanding of the embodiments of this application, the following defines some terms in the embodiments of this application.

[0120] Lock screen interface: An interface displayed when a terminal is in a screen locked state is a lock screen interface. A user needs to enter a correct unlocking instruction in the lock screen interface in a preset unlocking manner, to unlock the terminal, that is, to release the terminal from the screen locked state. Therefore, the lock screen interface may also be referred to as an unlocking interface. For different unlocking manners, lock screen interfaces displayed by the terminal are also different. A lock screen interface in the embodiments of this application includes a lock screen interface corresponding to at least one unlocking manner.

[0121] Accidental touch scenario: In this application, an accidental touch scenario is a scenario in which an unintentional unlocking operation easily occurs. The unintentional unlocking operation is a touch operation not intended to unlock a terminal. The scenario may be specifically a scenario in which an accidental touch easily occurs, for example, when the terminal is in a backpack, the terminal is in a pocket, a screen of the terminal is covered by an object, or a baby aimlessly touches the terminal playfully.

[0122] Operation related to a security mode: An operation related to a security mode is an operation that can reduce impact of a touch operation on the security mode, for example, modifying a trigger rule of the security mode, modifying a security policy corresponding to the security mode, or limiting the touch operation.

[0123] Anti-accidental-touch mode: An anti-accidental-touch mode is used to prevent an unintentional operation on a terminal. Specifically, a specific interface may be displayed on a screen, and a user cannot perform any operations in the interface, that is, all operations performed in the interface are blocked. The terminal exits the mode only when receiving a specific operation (for example, pressing a power button) of the user or determining that the terminal is in a non-accidental touch environment (for example, determining that proximity light in the screen is not blocked).

[0124] Unlocking operation: An unlocking operation is a touch operation that is detected by a terminal and that is used to unlock the terminal.

[0125] Preset operation: A preset operation is an operation that requires particular input logic for implementation, where the input logic is a law and rule of thinking for entering. That is, the preset operation is an operation that needs to be implemented by a conscious behavior generated by a user through analysis, for example, entering an answer to a displayed math problem, dragging a displayed slider to a specific position, or drawing a specific figure, and is an operation that cannot be implemented in an accidental touch scenario in which, for example, a plurality of displayed touch points are touched simultaneously.

[0126] Fingerprint recognition area: A fingerprint recognition area is an area capable of identifying fingerprint information. The area is usually located in a HOME button area of a terminal, or in a specific recognition area on the back of a terminal, or in another specific area. This is not specifically limited in this application.

[0127] Touch point: A touch point is a point of contact between a target object entering a touch operation and a touch sensing area (for example, a screen or a fingerprint recognition area). The point of contact changes as the target object moves on the screen, that is, coordinates corresponding to the touch point change as the target object moves on the screen. The target object may be a part of a user such as a finger or an elbow, or may be an object such as a stylus or a glove.

[0128] Security mode: After entering a screen locked state, a terminal collects statistics on a quantity of consecutive unlocking failures. When the quantity of consecutive unlocking failures reaches a preset quantity, the terminal performs some security processing operations (to be specific, carrying out a corresponding security policy). In this case, the terminal is considered to have entered a security mode. For ease of description, in the embodiments of this application, the quantity of consecutive unlocking failures that is obtained through statistics collection is referred to as a quantity of consecutive unlocking failures, and the preset quantity is referred to as a security trigger quantity. In the embodiments of this application, the security processing operations may specifically include: locking the terminal for a period of time, so that a user cannot perform any unlocking operation; erasing data on the terminal; resetting the terminal to factory settings; or another operation. This is not specifically limited in this application.

[0129] To facilitate understanding of the embodiments of this application, the following describes a principle and a design idea of the embodiments of this application: In an existing unlocking procedure, after N consecutive unlocking failures (within a period T) (to be specific, a quantity of consecutive unlocking failures reaches a security trigger quantity), a security policy module of a terminal is triggered, to perform one or more security processing operations such as locking the terminal for S seconds, erasing data, resetting the terminal to factory settings, and alerting.

[0130] However, in this application, an anti-accidental-touch determining module and an accidental-touch identification module are added, as shown in FIG. 1.

[0131] The accidental-touch identification module is configured to: identify whether a current unlocking behavior is an accidental touch behavior or an intentional behavior of a user, to determine whether a current scenario of a terminal is an accidental touch scenario; and when determining that the current unlocking behavior is an accidental touch behavior (that is, determining that the current scenario is an accidental touch scenario), perform a related operation to reduce impact of the accidental touch behavior on a security mode. The operation performed by the accidental-touch identification module may be performed after an unlocking behavior event or during an unlocking behavior event.

[0132] The anti-accidental-touch determining module is configured to prevent the security policy module from being triggered by an unintentional behavior of a user caused by an accidental touch. The anti-accidental-touch determining module is triggered when the quantity of consecutive unlocking failures reaches the security trigger quantity, and an operation performed by the anti-accidental-touch determining module is performed before the security policy module performs the security processing operation.

[0133] In an unlocking procedure shown in FIG. 1, the terminal enters a screen locked state by using a screen locking module and displays a lock screen interface. When an unlocking behavior event is received (for example, a touch operation is obtained), if an instruction triggered by the unlocking behavior event matches a correct unlocking instruction (that is, an unlocking password is correct), the terminal is successfully unlocked, and the terminal displays a home screen or another non-lock-screen interface; if an instruction triggered by the unlocking behavior event does not match a correct unlocking instruction (that is, an unlocking password is incorrect), the accidental-touch identification module is triggered to identify an unintentional operation and count a quantity of unlocking failures. When the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the anti-accidental-touch determining module is triggered. When the quantity of unlocking failures reaches N, the security policy module is triggered.

[0134] It should be understood that the lock screen interface processing method in the embodiments of this application may be implemented based on the anti-accidental-touch determining module and/or the accidental-touch identification module. The terminal in the embodiments of this application may include the anti-accidental-touch determining module and/or the accidental-touch identification module. Optionally, on the terminal, switches/a switch of the anti-accidental-touch determining module and/or the accidental-touch identification module may be provided, so that a user can choose, on the terminal, whether to enable functions/a function of the anti-accidental-touch determining module and/or the accidental-touch identification module. After the user enables the function of the module, the module performs a corresponding procedure.

[0135] To facilitate understanding of the embodiments of this application, the following describes a scenario to which the lock screen interface processing method and the terminal in this application are applicable.

[0136] The terminal in the embodiments of this application includes but is not limited to the following electronic devices: a mobile phone, a tablet computer, an e-reader, a handheld game console, a vehicle-mounted electronic device, and the like. An operating system of the terminal may be Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry OS, or the like. This is not specifically limited in the embodiments of this application. It should be noted that in the embodiments of this application, a display screen of the terminal has a touch input function, and the terminal has a screen locking function.

[0137] In the embodiments of this application, after the terminal enters a screen locked state, the terminal may display, after obtaining an instruction for entering a lock screen interface, a lock screen interface corresponding to a preset unlocking manner, for example, a sliding unlocking interface (namely, a lock screen interface corresponding to sliding unlocking) shown in FIG. 2A, FIG. 2B, or FIG. 2C, a pattern unlocking interface (namely, a lock screen interface corresponding to pattern unlocking) shown in FIG. 2D or FIG. 2E, a password unlocking interface (namely, a lock screen interface corresponding to password unlocking) shown in FIG. 2F or FIG. 2G, or a fingerprint unlocking interface (namely, a lock screen interface corresponding to fingerprint unlocking) shown in FIG. 2H or FIG. 21.

[0138] In a specific scenario, after the terminal enters the screen locked state, a user puts the terminal in a backpack. As shown in FIG. 3A, when the user walks carrying the backpack, the backpack is inevitably shaken, and objects inside the backpack rub against each other; as a result, an object (for example, a key or a pen) inside the backpack touches or presses the terminal, and the object (for example, the key) inside the backpack generates a touch operation in the lock screen interface and/or a fingerprint recognition area of the terminal.

[0139] In another specific scenario, after the terminal enters the screen locked state, a user puts the terminal in a pocket. As shown in FIG. 3B, when the user walks, a leg inevitably rubs against the mobile phone, and this friction generates a touch operation in the lock screen interface and/or a fingerprint recognition area.

[0140] In another specific scenario, after the terminal enters the screen locked state, a user places the terminal next to a keyboard. As shown in FIG. 3C, the user accidentally touches the terminal when typing on the keyboard, and consequently a touch operation is generated in the lock screen interface and/or a fingerprint recognition area.

[0141] In the foregoing scenarios, when an interface displayed by the terminal is the lock screen interface, the terminal considers an instruction triggered by the generated touch operation, as an unlocking instruction, and therefore triggers a security mode. However, in the embodiments of this application, when the terminal displays the lock screen interface, the terminal may determine, based on the touch operations generated in the foregoing scenarios, that the terminal is currently in an accidental touch scenario, and then perform a related operation to reduce impact of these touch operations on a security mode.

[0142] It should be understood that the lock screen interface processing method in this application may also be applied to another scenario in addition to the foregoing scenarios. This is not specifically limited in this application.

[0143] It should be understood that the instruction for entering the lock screen interface may include a screen-on instruction or a screen locking instruction. The screen-on instruction is used to turn on a screen, and specifically, may be triggered by an operation such as quickly pressing a power button of the terminal, opening a leather case or a flip cover of the terminal, or turning on the screen by a background application of the terminal. For example, when the screen of the terminal is turned off or turns black, a user or another object presses the power button of the terminal, and the terminal obtains the screen-on instruction, turns on the screen, and presents the lock screen interface. The screen locking instruction is used to switch the terminal from a non-screen-locked state to a screen locked state. For example, a screen locking option is available in a menu of a floating button on the screen of the terminal, and when a user taps the option, the terminal obtains the screen locking instruction and enters the screen locked state; or a user uses a preset operation gesture (for example, double tapping the screen) on the screen of the terminal, and the terminal obtains the screen locking instruction and enters the screen locked state.

[0144] It should be understood that a plurality of unlocking manners may be set on one terminal. For example, with password unlocking and fingerprint unlocking combined, the terminal may display the fingerprint unlocking interface shown in FIG. 2H or FIG. 21; and when it is detected on the fingerprint unlocking interface that a quantity of fingerprint unlocking failures reaches a preset value, the terminal may display the password unlocking interface shown in FIG. 2F or FIG. 2G, to prompt a user to unlock the terminal in the password unlocking manner. There are other scenarios in which the terminal is unlocked by combining a plurality of manners, and the other scenarios are not listed herein.

[0145] It should be noted that the sliding unlocking interface is an interface that requires the user to slide in a preset direction to unlock the screen, and the sliding unlocking interface in the embodiments of this application is not limited to the interfaces shown in FIG. 2A to FIG. 2C; the pattern unlocking interface is an interface that requires the user to slide along a preset track to unlock the screen, and the pattern unlocking interface in the embodiments of this application is not limited to the interfaces shown in FIG. 2D and FIG. 2E; the password unlocking interface is an interface that requires the user to enter a preset character to unlock the screen, and the pattern unlocking interface in the embodiments of this application is not limited to the interfaces shown in FIG. 2F and FIG. 2G; and the fingerprint unlocking interface is an interface that requires the user to enter a preset fingerprint in the fingerprint recognition area to unlock the screen, and the pattern unlocking interface in the embodiments of this application is not limited to the interfaces shown in FIG. 2H and FIG. 21.

[0146] Based on the foregoing scenarios, the following describes the lock screen interface processing method in the embodiments of this application. Referring to FIG. 4, an embodiment of the lock screen interface processing method in the embodiments of this application includes the following steps.

[0147] 401. A terminal displays a lock screen interface.

[0148] After the terminal enters a screen locked state, the terminal displays the lock screen interface on a screen after obtaining an instruction for entering the lock screen interface. The lock screen interface may include or certainly may not include prompt information for an unlocking manner.

[0149] 402. The terminal obtains a touch operation.

[0150] In this embodiment of this application, after the terminal displays the lock screen interface on the screen, when a user touches the screen and/or a fingerprint recognition area of the terminal with a finger or another part of the body, or another object, the terminal obtains the touch operation.

[0151] 403. The terminal determines, based on the touch operation, whether the terminal is in an accidental touch scenario; and if the terminal is in the accidental touch scenario, performs step 404; or if the terminal is not in the accidental touch scenario, performs step 405.

[0152] After obtaining the touch operation, the terminal determines touch information corresponding to the touch operation, and then determines, based on the touch information, whether a current scenario of the terminal is the accidental touch scenario. When determining that the current scenario is the accidental touch scenario, the terminal performs step 404.

[0153] Specifically, the touch information includes at least one of a touch position, a touch time, touch point coordinates, a touch point track, and touch fingerprint information that are corresponding to the touch operation, and certainly may further include other information.

[0154] It should be understood that for different unlocking manners, to improve efficiency and accuracy of accidental-touch identification, there may be different methods for determining whether the obtained touch operation is an accidental touch operation. For details, refer to a framework diagram shown in FIG. 5. For ease of understanding, the following describes each unlocking manner in detail with reference to the accompanying drawing.

1. Pattern unlocking: Pattern unlocking means unlocking the screen by sliding along a preset track in the lock screen interface.
In this embodiment of this application, the lock screen interface displayed by the terminal is a pattern unlocking interface, and correspondingly, the terminal may determine, in one or more of the following manners, whether the obtained touch operation is an accidental touch operation.

  1. (1) The terminal determines whether touch duration of the touch operation is less than a first threshold, and if the touch duration is less than the first threshold, determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.
  2. (2) The terminal determines whether a touch track length corresponding to the touch operation is less than a second threshold, and if the touch track length is less than the second threshold, determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.
    It should be understood that a correct unlocking pattern needs to connect to a plurality of specific unlocking sensing keys, and therefore under normal circumstances, a user slides a specific distance and needs a specific amount of time when unlocking the screen in the pattern unlocking manner. For example, track lengths corresponding to patterns such as "L", "N", and "Z" are relatively long. Therefore, a touch operation that has relatively short touch duration (or touch response duration) or a relatively short touch point track length may be considered as an unintentional operation. To be specific, when the terminal determines that touch duration of a touch operation is less than the first threshold or that a touch point track length corresponding to a touch operation is less than the second threshold, the terminal determines that the touch operation is an unintentional operation.
    The unlocking sensing key is a sensing key that is in the lock screen interface and that can trigger an unlocking instruction based on a user input, and may be specifically a pattern connecting point in the pattern unlocking interface or a virtual key in the password unlocking interface, for example, round marks in the unlocking interface shown in FIG. 2D or FIG. 2E or number keys in the unlocking interface shown in FIG. 2F or FIG. 2G
    The first threshold is a reference value of touch duration in a case of pattern unlocking. The first threshold may be a value determined by the terminal based on historical unlocking behaviors of the user on the terminal. For example, statistics on touch duration corresponding to touch operations that unlock the terminal successfully in the pattern unlocking manner are collected, and the second threshold is greater than or equal to a greatest value in the touch duration. Alternatively, the second threshold may be a system default value, or may be a value entered by the user in system settings of the terminal. This is not limited.
    The second threshold is a reference value of a touch track length in a case of pattern unlocking. The second threshold may be a system default value, or may be a value entered by the user in system settings of the terminal. This is not specifically limited. For example, in the scenario corresponding to FIG. 3C, the terminal displays the pattern unlocking interface; when typing on the keyboard, an elbow of the user is in contact with the terminal and generates a sliding operation shown in FIG. 6A, in which black spots are points of contact between the elbow of the user and the terminal. Assuming that the second threshold is 30 mm, a distance that the elbow of the user slides on the terminal is 2 mm, which is less than the second threshold, and therefore the terminal can determine that the sliding operation is an accidental touch operation.
  3. (3) The terminal determines whether touch point coordinates corresponding to the touch operation include coordinates in an accidental touch area, and if the touch point coordinates corresponding to the touch operation include the coordinates in the accidental touch area, the terminal determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.
    It should be understood that in this embodiment of this application, the accidental touch area may be delimited by the user or may be automatically identified by the terminal. The accidental touch area may be specifically an area in the lock screen interface excluding an unlocking sensing key, for example, an area at a distance of a preset value from the unlocking sensing key. Using FIG. 6B as an example, an area out of a dashed-line box may be considered as an accidental touch area.
    It should be understood that in this embodiment of this application, the touch point coordinates are touch point coordinates detected by a touchscreen of the terminal because of the touch operation. For example, a finger of the user slides on the screen, and all coordinates corresponding to a track of the sliding are considered as touch point coordinates corresponding to this touch operation. Alternatively, the user presses a first position on the screen with a first finger, and taps a second position on the screen with a second finger while keeping pressing with the first finger. In this case, both coordinates corresponding to the first position and coordinates corresponding to the second position are considered as touch point coordinates corresponding to this touch operation.
    For example, in the scenario corresponding to FIG. 3C, the terminal displays the pattern unlocking interface; when typing on the keyboard, an elbow of the user is in contact with the terminal and generates a sliding operation shown in FIG. 6B, in which black spots are points of contact between the elbow of the user and the terminal. The elbow of the user slides from a position in the left figure in FIG. 6B to a position in the right figure in FIG. 6B, and the area out of the dashed-line box is the accidental touch area, to be specific, the elbow of the user slides from a non-accidental touch area to the accidental touch area during sliding, and touch point coordinates corresponding to this sliding operation include coordinates in the accidental touch area (for example, coordinates corresponding to the position in the right figure in FIG. 6B). Therefore, the terminal can determine that the sliding operation is an accidental touch operation.
  4. (4) The terminal determines whether the touch operation is a multi-touch-point operation, that is, determines whether a quantity of touch points corresponding to the touch operation is greater than 1, and if the touch operation is the multi-touch-point operation, determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.
    It should be understood that the multi-touch-point operation is a touch operation corresponding to a plurality of touch points. For example, in the scenario shown in FIG. 3A, the terminal displays the pattern unlocking interface; the backpack is shaken while the user walks, and consequently the key and the pen inside the backpack are in contact with the terminal, generating a touch operation shown in FIG. 6C. The pen first presses a first position (in the left figure) on the terminal, and when the backpack is shaken, the key then touches a second position (in the right figure) on the terminal. In this case, the terminal detects two touch points (the first position and the second position) on the screen, that is, a quantity of touch points corresponding to the touch operation is greater than 1. The terminal determines that the touch operation is an unintentional operation.
    Therefore, when the terminal presents the pattern unlocking interface, the terminal is in an accidental touch environment when the touch operation obtained by the terminal satisfies one or more of the following conditions: The touch duration is less than the first threshold; the touch track length is less than the second threshold; the touch point coordinates include the coordinates in the accidental touch area; and the quantity of touch points is greater than 1. 2. Password unlocking: Password unlocking means unlocking the screen by entering a preset password in the lock screen interface.
    In this embodiment of this application, a preset unlocking manner includes password unlocking, and correspondingly, the terminal may determine, in the following manners, whether the obtained touch operation satisfies a preset condition.
  5. (5) The terminal determines whether touch duration of the touch operation is greater than a third threshold, and if the touch duration is greater than the third threshold, determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.
  6. (6) The terminal determines whether a touch point track length corresponding to the touch operation is greater than a fourth threshold, and if the touch point track length is greater than the fourth threshold, determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.
    It should be understood that a correct unlocking password includes a plurality of characters, and under normal circumstances, when the user unlocks the terminal in the password unlocking manner, an entered touch operation should be a tap operation. Therefore, when the terminal determines that the touch duration corresponding to the touch operation is greater than the third threshold or that the touch point track length corresponding to the touch operation is greater than the fourth threshold, the terminal can determine that the touch operation is an accidental touch operation.
    The third threshold is a reference value of touch duration in a case of password unlocking. The third threshold may be a value determined by the terminal based on historical unlocking behaviors of the user on the terminal. For example, statistics on touch duration corresponding to touch operations that unlock the terminal successfully in the password unlocking manner are collected, and the third threshold is greater than or equal to a greatest value in the touch duration. Alternatively, the second threshold may be a system default value, or may be a value entered by the user in system settings of the terminal. This is not limited in this application.
    The fourth threshold is a reference value of a touch track length in a case of password unlocking. The fourth threshold may be a system default value, or may be a value entered by the user in system settings of the terminal. This is not specifically limited in this application.
    Therefore, when the terminal presents the password unlocking interface, the terminal is in an accidental touch environment when the touch operation obtained by the terminal satisfies one or more of the following conditions: The touch duration is greater than the third threshold; the touch track length is greater than the fourth threshold; touch point coordinates include coordinates in an accidental touch area; and a quantity of touch points is greater than 1.
  7. (7) The terminal determines whether the touch point coordinates corresponding to the touch operation include the coordinates in the accidental touch area, and if the touch point coordinates corresponding to the touch operation include the coordinates in the accidental touch area, the terminal determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.
    This manner is similar to the manner described in (3), and details are not described herein again.
  8. (8) The terminal determines whether the touch operation is a multi-touch-point operation, that is, determines whether a quantity of touch points corresponding to the touch operation is greater than 1, and if the touch operation is the multi-touch-point operation, determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.

This manner is similar to the manner described in (4), and details are not described herein again.
It should be noted that if the lock screen interface displayed by the terminal is the password unlocking interface, the terminal may determine, in any one of the manners in (5) to (8), whether the touch operation is the accidental touch operation, or may determine, by using a combination of a plurality of manners in (5) to (8), whether the touch operation is the accidental touch operation. For example, the manner described in (5) and the manner described in (6) may be combined, to be specific, the terminal considers that the touch operation does not satisfy the preset condition only when determining that the touch duration of the touch operation is greater than the fourth threshold and that the touch point track length of the touch operation is greater than a fifth threshold. For example, the manner described in (7) and the manner described in (8) may be combined, to be specific, the terminal considers that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation only when determining that the touch operation is the multi-touch-point operation and that the touch point coordinates corresponding to the touch operation include the coordinates in the accidental touch area. Other combined manners may also be used, and are not enumerated herein.

3. Fingerprint unlocking: Fingerprint unlocking means unlocking the screen by entering preset fingerprint information in the fingerprint recognition area.
In this embodiment of this application, a preset unlocking manner includes fingerprint unlocking, and correspondingly, the terminal may determine, in the following manners, whether the obtained touch operation satisfies a preset condition.

(9) The terminal determines whether touch duration of the touch operation is greater than a fifth threshold, and if the touch duration is greater than the fifth threshold, determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.
It should be understood that under normal circumstances, when the user unlocks the terminal in the fingerprint unlocking manner, an entered touch operation should be a short-tap operation. Therefore, when the terminal determines that the touch duration corresponding to the touch operation is greater than the fourth threshold, the terminal can determine that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.
The fifth threshold is a reference value of touch duration in a case of fingerprint unlocking. The fifth threshold may be a value determined by the terminal based on historical unlocking behaviors of the user on the terminal. For example, statistics on touch duration corresponding to touch operations that unlock the terminal successfully in the fingerprint unlocking manner are collected, and the fifth threshold is greater than or equal to a greatest value in the touch duration. Alternatively, the fifth threshold may be a system default value, or may be a value entered by the user in system settings of the terminal. This is not specifically limited in this application.
The scenario corresponding to FIG. 3C is used for description below. In the scenario, the terminal displays the fingerprint unlocking interface; when typing on the keyboard, an arm of the user generates a touch operation on the terminal, as shown in FIG. 8A. Assuming that the fifth threshold is 5s, in the figure, the arm of the user touches a HOME button of the terminal and holds for 10s, which is greater than the fifth threshold. Therefore, the terminal determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.

(10) The terminal determines whether a touch point corresponding to the touch operation includes a touch point in a non-fingerprint-recognition area, and if the touch point corresponding to the touch operation includes the touch point in the non-fingerprint-recognition area, the terminal determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation.



[0155] It should be understood that the non-fingerprint-recognition area is a touch sensing area other than the fingerprint recognition area. In actual application, the fingerprint recognition area is usually located in a HOME button area of the terminal, as shown in FIG. 8B, or in a specific recognition area on the back of the terminal, as shown in FIG. 8C, or in another specific area. This is not specifically limited herein. The following uses a specific example for description. As shown in FIG. 8D, it is assumed that the fingerprint recognition area of the terminal is located at a HOME button, and a user (or another object) touches a coordinate point on the screen and the HOME button simultaneously. In this case, the terminal determines that this touch operation corresponds to two touch points, one of which is located on the screen (the non-fingerprint-recognition area). In other words, the touch points corresponding to the touch include the touch point in the non-fingerprint-recognition area. Therefore, the terminal determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation. In other words, both the two touch points are accidental touch points.

[0156] Therefore, when the terminal presents the fingerprint unlocking interface, the terminal is in an accidental touch environment when the touch operation obtained by the terminal satisfies one or more of the following conditions: The touch duration is greater than the fifth threshold; and whether the touch point corresponding to the touch operation includes the touch point in the non-fingerprint-recognition area. When the terminal determines that the touch operation is the accidental touch operation, the terminal determines that the terminal is in an accidental touch scenario. Specifically, the terminal may determine that the terminal is in the accidental touch scenario, only after determining for a plurality of consecutive times that obtained touch operations are accidental touch operations, and perform step 404; or may determine that a current scenario is the accidental touch scenario, when determining that the current touch operation is the accidental touch operation, and perform step 404.

[0157] 404. The terminal performs an operation related to a security mode.

[0158] When the terminal determines that the terminal is in the accidental touch scenario, the terminal may perform one or more of the following operations related to the security mode, to reduce impact of the accidental touch operation on the security mode.
  1. 1. The terminal does not respond to an instruction triggered by the touch operation.
  2. 2. The terminal increases a security trigger quantity, where the security trigger quantity is a quantity of consecutive unlocking failures that triggers the security mode, that is, a quantity of unlocking failures allowed by the terminal. When a quantity of consecutive unlocking failures of the terminal within preset duration reaches the security trigger quantity, the terminal enters the security mode.
    Specifically, the terminal may determine, based on a quantity of detected unintentional operations, a value by which the security trigger quantity needs to increase. For example, the terminal increases the security trigger quantity by 1 each time the terminal determines one accidental touch operation, or increases the security trigger quantity by 1 each time the terminal determines two unintentional operations.
    The following uses an example for description. The security trigger quantity preset by the terminal is 5. The terminal obtains one touch operation after displaying the lock screen interface. The terminal determines that this touch operation fails to unlock the terminal and that this touch operation is an accidental touch operation. In this case, the terminal increases the security trigger quantity to 6.
  3. 3. The terminal ignores an unlocking failure caused by the touch operation. To be specific, the unlocking failure caused by the touch operation is not added as a statistical sample, to a quantity of consecutive unlocking failures.
    The following uses an example for description. After the terminal displays the lock screen interface, a current quantity of consecutive unlocking failures is 2. In this case, the terminal obtains one touch operation, and the terminal determines that the touch operation fails to unlock the terminal and that the touch operation is an accidental touch operation. The terminal ignores the unlocking failure, to be specific, the unlocking failure is not added as a sample to the quantity of consecutive unlocking failures. The current quantity of consecutive unlocking failures is still 2.
  4. 4. The terminal shortens locking duration in the security mode corresponding to the touch operation. It should be understood that a security policy corresponding to the security mode in this embodiment includes locking the terminal for a period of time, and the locking duration in the security mode is a length of this locking period. The security mode corresponding to the touch operation is a security mode triggered by an unlocking failure caused by the touch operation, and N unlocking failure operations that trigger the security mode include at least one accidental touch operation.
    Specifically, the terminal may calculate a value by which locking duration needs to be shortened, based on a quantity of accidental touch operations detected within preset duration. For example, one accidental touch operation shortens the locking duration by 5 seconds, and when a quantity of consecutive unlocking failures counted within the preset duration (among which five unlocking failures are caused by unintentional operations) reaches the security trigger quantity, the terminal shortens a locking period of the terminal by 25 seconds. The locking duration may alternatively be a fixed value. For example, when a quantity of consecutive unlocking failures of the terminal counted within the preset duration reaches the security trigger quantity, the terminal fixes a locking period at 10 seconds regardless of whether the quantity of consecutive unlocking failures includes one or more accidental touch operations.
  5. 5. An anti-accidental-touch mode is enabled, to prevent an unintentional operation on the terminal. Specifically, a specific interface may be displayed on the screen, and the user cannot perform any operations in the interface, that is, all operations performed in the interface are blocked. The terminal exits the mode only when receiving a specific operation (for example, pressing a power button) of the user or determining that the terminal is in a non-accidental touch environment (for example, determining that proximity light in the screen is not blocked).
  6. 6. An alert is given to the user. The alert may include at least one of the following: ringing, vibration, music playing, a voice alert, light flashing, screen-on, and displaying of a prompt interface. The prompt interface is used to prompt the user to enter a preset operation. For details, refer to the following descriptions in an embodiment corresponding to FIG. 9.


[0159] 405. The terminal performs another procedure.

[0160] When the terminal determines that the terminal currently is not in the accidental touch scenario, the terminal may perform another procedure such as determining an unlocking failure and increasing a quantity of unlocking failures.

[0161] In this embodiment of this application, when the terminal determines, based on the obtained touch operation, whether the terminal is currently in the accidental touch environment, the terminal may perform the operation related to the security mode, to reduce impact of the touch operation in the accidental touch environment on the security mode. This can prevent the following problems: without consciousness of the user, the terminal is locked, data on the terminal is erased, the terminal is reset to factory settings, and the like. In this way, user experience is improved.

[0162] In addition, this embodiment of this application provides a plurality of measures for reducing impact of the accidental touch operation on the security mode, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0163] Moreover, this embodiment of this application provides a plurality of manners of determining that the terminal is in the accidental touch scenario, thereby further improving flexibility of the solution.

[0164] An embodiment of this application further provides another lock screen interface processing method. Referring to FIG. 9, another embodiment of the lock screen interface processing method in the embodiments of this application includes the following steps.

[0165] 901. A terminal presents a lock screen interface.

[0166] After the terminal enters a screen locked state, the terminal displays the lock screen interface on a screen after obtaining an instruction for entering the lock screen interface. The lock screen interface may include or certainly may not include prompt information for an unlocking manner.

[0167] 902. The terminal obtains an unlocking operation.

[0168] After the terminal displays the lock screen interface on the screen, a user touches the lock screen interface and/or a fingerprint recognition area of the terminal with a finger or another part of the body, or another object, and the terminal obtains a touch operation, that is, the unlocking operation, performed in the lock screen interface and/or the fingerprint recognition area.

[0169] Optionally, in this embodiment, the unlocking operation may include at least one accidental touch operation, and the accidental touch operation is a touch operation in an accidental touch scenario.

[0170] Specifically, the terminal may determine, in manners (1) to (10) shown in FIG. 5, whether the unlocking operation performed in the lock screen interface and/or the fingerprint recognition area is the accidental touch operation.

[0171] In other words, if the lock screen interface presented by the terminal is a pattern unlocking interface, the touch operation in the accidental touch scenario may include at least one of the following: a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch duration is less than a first threshold; a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch track length is less than a second threshold; a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and that has more than one touch point; and a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch point coordinates include coordinates in an accidental touch area.

[0172] If the lock screen interface presented by the terminal is a password unlocking interface, the touch operation in the accidental touch scenario includes at least one of the following: a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and whose touch duration is greater than a third threshold; a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and whose touch track length is less than a third threshold; a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and that has more than one touch point; and a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and whose touch point coordinates include coordinates in an accidental touch area. If the lock screen interface presented by the terminal is a fingerprint unlocking interface, the touch operation in the accidental touch scenario includes at least one of the following: a touch operation that is performed in a fingerprint recognition area and whose touch duration is greater than a fifth threshold; and a touch operation that has a touch point in a non-fingerprint-recognition area.

[0173] 903. The terminal presents a prompt interface.

[0174] If a quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal presents the prompt interface. The prompt interface is used to prompt the user to enter a preset operation. M is less than N, and N is a security trigger quantity, to be specific, a quantity of unlocking failures that triggers a security mode.

[0175] It should be understood that a value of N may be set by a system by default, or may be set by the user; the value may be fixed, or may vary with the security trigger quantity. For example, the value may be fixed at 5, or may be less than the security trigger quantity by 1. A value of M may be set by the system, or may be set by the user. This is not limited herein.

[0176] In this embodiment, after presenting the lock screen interface, the terminal obtains at least M unlocking operations, and if none of instructions triggered by M unlocking operations in the at least M unlocking operations matches a preset unlocking instruction, the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M.

[0177] Optionally, if the unlocking operation obtained by the terminal includes at least one accidental touch operation, when determining, based on the obtained unlocking operation, that the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal presents the prompt interface. In other words, the terminal presents the prompt interface only when the M unlocking failures include at least one unlocking failure that is triggered by the accidental touch operation.

[0178] Optionally, if all unlocking operations obtained by the terminal are accidental touch operations, when determining, based on the obtained unlocking operations, that the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal presents the prompt interface. In other words, the terminal presents the prompt interface only when all the M unlocking failures are triggered by the accidental touch operations.

[0179] Optionally, if the Mth unlocking operation obtained by the terminal is an accidental touch operation, when determining, based on the unlocking operation, that the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal presents the prompt interface. In other words, the terminal presents the prompt interface only when the Mth unlocking failure is triggered by the accidental touch operation.

[0180] Optionally, the terminal presents the prompt interface, only when the unlocking operation obtained by the terminal does not include an unintentional unlocking operation and the terminal determines, based on the obtained unlocking operation, that the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M.

[0181] It should be understood that the terminal may present the prompt interface in a plurality of manners. For example, the prompt interface may be displayed in full screen, as shown in FIG. 10A; the prompt interface may be displayed as a part of the lock screen interface, as shown in FIG. 10B; the prompt interface may be displayed in a form of a message prompt box, as shown in FIG. 10C; and in scenarios of password unlocking and pattern unlocking, the prompt message is superimposed on an unlocking control of the lock screen interface, as shown in FIG. 10D. The terminal may also present the prompt interface in other manners, which are not enumerated herein.

[0182] 904. The terminal obtains the preset operation triggered by the user, and presents the lock screen interface.

[0183] The prompt interface presented by the terminal is used to prompt the user to enter the preset operation. The preset operation is an operation that requires particular input logic for implementation, that is, an operation that can be implemented only by a conscious behavior generated by the user through analysis.

[0184] Optionally, in this embodiment, after presenting the prompt interface, the terminal may block all inputs in an area outside the prompt interface. Such inputs are specifically, for example, an input in the fingerprint recognition area, an input in an interface other than the prompt interface on the screen, and an input from a function key such as a HOME button, a power button, or a volume button.

[0185] Optionally, in this embodiment, when the terminal obtains an operation different from the preset operation, the terminal does not respond to the operation, and the prompt interface is still presented on the screen. The terminal responds only when the terminal obtains the preset operation that is entered by the user based on the prompt interface, and presents the lock screen interface on the screen, so that the user can continue to unlock the terminal in the lock screen interface. In other words, the terminal always presents the prompt interface or continues presenting the prompt interface before the terminal obtains the preset operation triggered by the user.

[0186] It should be understood that in this case, the quantity of unlocking failures counted by the terminal is still M, and the terminal does not clear the quantity of unlocking failures.

[0187] The following describes in detail specific presentation content of the prompt interface.

[0188] In this embodiment, the prompt interface may be used to prompt the user to enter a sliding operation. The sliding operation is corresponding to at least one of the following types of sliding information: a preset start point, a preset end point, a preset track, preset duration, and a preset length.

[0189] As shown in FIG. 11A, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to start sliding from the preset start point. According to a prompt, the user first touches a touch point 1 (the preset start point), and then slides along any track, as shown in FIG. 11B. The terminal obtains this operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0190] As shown in FIG. 12A, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to start sliding along a preset track from the preset start point. According to a prompt, the user first touches a touch point 1 (the preset start point), and then slides along a track S (the preset track), as shown in FIG. 12B. The terminal obtains this operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0191] As shown in FIG. 13A, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to touch a fixed position and then slide along a fixed track. According to a prompt, the user first touches a pressing point 1 (the preset start point), and then slides to a pressing point 2 and then to a pressing point 3 (sliding along the preset track to the preset end point), as shown in FIG. 13B. The terminal obtains this operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0192] As shown in FIG. 14A, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to slide to draw a preset figure (along the preset track). According to a prompt, the user slides on the screen along a track shown in FIG. 14B. The terminal obtains this operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0193] As shown in FIG. 15A, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to slide to draw a specific figure (along the preset track) including a preset element. According to a prompt, the user draws a triangle encircling the black spot on the screen, as shown in FIG. 15B. The terminal obtains this operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0194] In this embodiment, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to drag a specific element to a specified position, and the specific element may be specifically a figure, a number, a word, a letter, or the like. This is not specifically limited herein.

[0195] As shown in FIG. 16A, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to drag a slider to a specific position. According to a prompt, the user drags the slider to the other end of a sliding box, as shown in FIG. 16B. The terminal obtains this operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0196] As shown in FIG. 17A, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to drag a specific number to a specific position. According to a prompt, the user works out 1+2=3, and then drags 3 from a table below to an input box in the figure, as shown in FIG. 17B. The terminal obtains this operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0197] In this embodiment, the prompt interface may be used to prompt the user to enter a tap operation. The tap operation is corresponding to at least one of the following types of tap information: a preset tap position and preset tap duration.

[0198] It should be understood that the preset tap position may be fixed. As shown in FIG. 18A, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to simultaneously tap a plurality of positions (the preset tap position). The user simultaneously taps a pressing point 1 and a pressing point 2 according to a prompt, as shown in FIG. 18B. The terminal obtains this operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0199] The preset tap position may alternatively be movable. As shown in FIG. 19A, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to tap a specific position (the preset tap position). When the user taps a pressing point 1, the pressing point 1 moves to another position; the user taps the position of the pressing point 1 again, and the pressing point 1 moves again; and the user taps the position of the pressing point 1 again (in a preset tap order), as shown in FIG. 19B. The terminal obtains this operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0200] The preset position may be a position corresponding to a specified figure that needs to be selected by the user from a plurality of elements. As shown in FIG. 19C, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to select a specified element from a plurality of elements. The user taps a triangle according to a prompt, as shown in FIG. 19D. The terminal obtains this operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0201] It should be understood that the preset tap duration is a time length for which the user taps a position and holds. As shown in FIG. 20A, the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to tap the preset tap position and hold for more than the preset tap duration. The user touches a button and holds for 3 seconds according to a prompt, as shown in FIG. 20B. The terminal obtains this tap operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0202] It should be understood that in this embodiment, the terminal may light only some of areas in a display interface, and extinguish pixels corresponding to another area, to prompt the user to tap the lighted area. As shown in FIG. 21A, pixels corresponding to a black part in the figure are extinguished. The user taps an area in which pixels are lighted in the figure, as shown in FIG. 21B. The terminal obtains this tap operation and displays the lock screen interface.

[0203] In this embodiment, the prompt interface may be used to prompt the user to enter a preset character, as shown in FIG. 22A. The user enters numbers 1, 2, and 3 according to a prompt, as shown in FIG. 22B. The terminal obtains the preset characters entered by the user, and displays the lock screen interface.

[0204] In this embodiment, the prompt interface may be used to prompt the user to shake the mobile phone to make a specific element move to a specified position, as shown in FIG. 23A. The user tilts the mobile phone to the lower left to move a black spot in the prompt interface, to make the black spot move into a circle, as shown in FIG. 23B. When the terminal detects that the black spot moves into the circle, the terminal displays the lock screen interface.

[0205] Optionally, in this embodiment of this application, the terminal may further give an alert when presenting the prompt interface. The alert given by the terminal may include at least one of the following: ringing, vibration, screen flashing, screen-on, and a voice alert. After the alert is given, the terminal stops the alert only when the terminal obtains the preset operation that is entered by the user based on the prompt interface. In other words, after the terminal gives the alert, the terminal does not stop the alert if a touch operation obtained by the terminal is not the preset operation. For example, a terminal program keeps ringing when presenting the prompt interface, and does not stop ringing until the preset operation entered by the user is received.

[0206] It should be noted that, the prompt interface may prompt the user to enter the preset operation, by using a visual indication and/or a voice prompt. This is not specifically limited herein.

[0207] In this embodiment of this application, when the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal may display the prompt interface to prompt the user to enter the preset operation. The preset operation is an operation that requires particular input logic for implementation and is a confirming operation triggered by a conscious behavior of the user. Therefore, an accidental touch behavior generated by an object or in another situation cannot enter the preset operation. This can prevent an accidental touch operation from triggering the security mode, and avoid the following problems: without consciousness of the user, the terminal is locked, data on the terminal is erased, the terminal is reset to factory settings, and the like. In this way, user experience is improved.

[0208] This embodiment of this application provides a plurality of manners of prompting the user to enter the preset operation, thereby improving flexibility of the solution.

[0209] An embodiment of this application further provides another lock screen interface processing method. Referring to FIG. 24, another embodiment of the lock screen interface processing method in the embodiments of this application includes the following steps.

[0210] 2401. A terminal presents a lock screen interface.

[0211] After the terminal enters a screen locked state, the terminal displays the lock screen interface on a screen after obtaining an instruction for entering the lock screen interface. The lock screen interface may include or certainly may not include prompt information for an unlocking manner.

[0212] 2402. The terminal obtains an unlocking operation.

[0213] After the terminal displays the lock screen interface on the screen, a user touches the lock screen interface and/or a fingerprint recognition area of the terminal with a finger or another part of the body, or another object, and the terminal obtains a touch operation, that is, the unlocking operation, performed in the lock screen interface and/or the fingerprint recognition area.

[0214] Optionally, in this embodiment, the unlocking operation may include at least one accidental touch operation, and the accidental touch operation is a touch operation in an accidental touch scenario.

[0215] Specifically, the terminal may determine, in manners (1) to (10) shown in FIG. 5, whether the unlocking operation performed in the lock screen interface and/or the fingerprint recognition area is an unintentional operation.

[0216] In other words, if the lock screen interface presented by the terminal is a pattern unlocking interface, the touch operation in the accidental touch scenario may include at least one of the following: a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch duration is less than a first threshold; a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch track length is less than a second threshold; a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and that has more than one touch point; and a touch operation that is performed in the pattern unlocking interface and whose touch point coordinates include coordinates in an accidental touch area.

[0217] If the lock screen interface presented by the terminal is a password unlocking interface, the touch operation in the accidental touch scenario includes at least one of the following: a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and whose touch duration is greater than a third threshold; a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and whose touch track length is less than a third threshold; a touch operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and that has more than one touch point; and an operation that is performed in the password unlocking interface and whose touch point coordinates include coordinates in an accidental touch area.

[0218] If the lock screen interface presented by the terminal is a fingerprint unlocking interface, the touch operation in the accidental touch scenario includes at least one of the following: a touch operation that is performed in a fingerprint recognition area and whose touch duration is greater than a fifth threshold; and a touch operation that has a touch point in a non-fingerprint-recognition area.

[0219] 2403. The terminal gives an alert.

[0220] If a quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal gives the alert, where M is less than N, and N is a security trigger quantity, to be specific, a quantity of unlocking failures that triggers a security mode.

[0221] It should be understood that a value of N may be set by a system by default, or may be set by the user; the value may be fixed, or may vary with the security trigger quantity. For example, the value may be fixed at 5, or may be less than the security trigger quantity by 1. A value of M may be set by the system, or may be set by the user. This is not limited herein.

[0222] Optionally, if the unlocking operation obtained by the terminal includes at least one accidental touch operation, when determining, based on the obtained unlocking operation, that the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal gives the alert. In other words, the terminal gives the alert only when the M unlocking failures include at least one unlocking failure that is triggered by the accidental touch operation.

[0223] Optionally, if all unlocking operations obtained by the terminal are accidental touch operations, when determining, based on the obtained unlocking operations, that the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal presents a prompt interface. In other words, the terminal gives the alert only when all the M unlocking failures are triggered by the accidental touch operations.

[0224] Optionally, if the Mth unlocking operation obtained by the terminal is an accidental touch operation, when determining, based on the unlocking operation, that the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal presents a prompt interface. In other words, the terminal gives the alert only when the Mth unlocking failure is triggered by the accidental touch operation.

[0225] Optionally, the terminal gives the alert, only when the unlocking operation obtained by the terminal does not include an unintentional unlocking operation and the terminal determines, based on the obtained unlocking operation, that the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M.

[0226] The terminal may determine, in manners (1) to (10) shown in FIG. 5, whether the unlocking operation performed in the lock screen interface and/or the fingerprint recognition area is the accidental touch operation.

[0227] Optionally, in this embodiment, when the terminal gives the alert, the screen of the terminal may turn black (turn off), or present the lock screen interface, or present a confirming button, or present the prompt interface, where the prompt interface is used to prompt the user to enter a preset operation. When presenting the prompt interface, the terminal may block all inputs in an area outside the prompt interface. Such inputs are specifically, for example, an input in the fingerprint recognition area, an input in an interface other than the prompt interface on the screen, and an input from a function key such as a HOME button, a power button, or a volume button. In other words, when the terminal obtains an operation different from the preset operation, the terminal does not respond to the operation, and the prompt interface is still presented on the screen.

[0228] Optionally, in this embodiment, the alert given by the terminal may include at least one of the following: ringing, vibration, screen flashing, screen-on, and a voice alert.

[0229] 2404. The terminal obtains a stop instruction entered by the user, and stops the alert.

[0230] After the terminal gives the alert, the alert continues, and does not stop until the terminal obtains the stop instruction entered by the user.

[0231] Optionally, in this embodiment, the terminal may present the lock screen interface when stopping the alert.

[0232] Optionally, in this embodiment, if the terminal presents the prompt interface when giving the alert, the stop instruction refers to the preset operation indicated in the prompt interface. For specific presentation content of the prompt interface, refer to the foregoing related descriptions in step 904 in the embodiment corresponding to FIG. 9. Details are not described herein again.

[0233] Optionally, in this embodiment, if the terminal presents the confirming button when giving the alert, the stop instruction refers to tapping the confirming button, as shown in FIG 25.

[0234] Optionally, in this embodiment, the stop instruction may alternatively be a specific operation gesture, for example, double tapping the screen. The stop instruction may alternatively be pressing a specific button, for example, pressing the power button or the HOME button.

[0235] In this embodiment of this application, when the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the terminal may give the alert continuously, so that the user can have a clear perception even if the terminal is in a pocket, a backpack, or another position. This can prevent the security mode from being triggered by a plurality of accidental touches when the terminal is in an accidental touch environment. In this way, user experience is improved.

[0236] The foregoing describes the lock screen interface processing method in the embodiments of this application. The following describes the terminal in the embodiments of this application. Referring to FIG. 26, an embodiment of the terminal in the embodiments of this application includes:

[0240] In this embodiment of this application, when the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the display module 2601 may display the prompt interface to prompt the user to enter the preset operation. The preset operation is an operation that requires particular input logic for implementation and is a confirming operation triggered by a conscious behavior of the user. Therefore, an accidental touch behavior generated by an object or in another situation cannot enter the preset operation. This can prevent an accidental touch operation from triggering the security mode, and avoid the following problems: without consciousness of the user, the terminal is locked, data on the terminal is erased, the terminal is reset to factory settings, and the like. In this way, user experience is improved.

[0255] In this embodiment of this application, when the quantity of unlocking failures reaches M, the display module 2701 may display the prompt interface to prompt the user to enter the preset operation. The preset operation is an operation that requires particular input logic for implementation and is a confirming operation triggered by a conscious behavior of the user. Therefore, an accidental touch behavior generated by an object or in another situation cannot enter the preset operation. This can prevent an accidental touch operation from triggering the security mode, and avoid the following problems: without consciousness of the user, the terminal is locked, data on the terminal is erased, the terminal is reset to factory settings, and the like.

[0276] The foregoing describes the terminal in this application from the perspective of functional modules. The following describes the terminal in this application from the perspective of physical hardware. As shown in FIG. 30, for ease of description, only a part related to the embodiments of the present invention is shown. For technical details not disclosed, refer to the method part in the embodiments of the present invention. The terminal may be any terminal device such as a mobile phone, a tablet computer, a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant, personal digital assistant), a POS (Point of Sales, point of sale), or a vehicle-mounted computer. For example, the terminal is a mobile phone.

[0277] FIG. 30 is a block diagram of a partial structure of a mobile phone related to the terminal provided in the embodiments of the present invention. Referring to FIG. 30, the mobile phone includes components such as a radio frequency (Radio Frequency, RF) circuit 3010, a memory 3020, an input unit 3030, a display unit 3040, a sensor 3050, an audio circuit 3060, a wireless fidelity (wireless fidelity, Wi-Fi) module 3070, a processor 3080, and a power supply 3090. A person skilled in the art can understand that the mobile phone structure shown in FIG. 30 does not constitute any limitation on the mobile phone, and the mobile phone may include more or fewer components than those shown in the figure, or a combination of some components, or components disposed differently.

[0278] The following describes in detail the components of the mobile phone with reference to FIG. 30.

[0279] The RF circuit 3010 may be configured to send and receive signals in information sending and receiving processes or during a call. In particular, the RF circuit 3010 may receive downlink information from a base station, and send the downlink information to the processor 3080 for processing. In addition, the RF circuit 3010 sends related uplink data to the base station. Generally, the RF circuit 3010 includes but is not limited to an antenna, at least one amplifier, a transceiver, a coupler, a low noise amplifier (Low Noise Amplifier, LNA), a duplexer, and the like. In addition, the RF circuit 3010 may also communicate with a network and another device through wireless communication. Any communication standard or protocol may be used for the wireless communication, including but not limited to global system for mobile communications (Global System of Mobile communication, GSM), general packet radio service (General Packet Radio Service, GPRS), code division multiple access (Code Division Multiple Access, CDMA), wideband code division multiple access (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access, WCDMA), long term evolution (Long Term Evolution, LTE), an email, a short message service (Short Messaging Service, SMS), and the like.

[0280] The memory 3020 may be configured to store a software program and a module. The processor 3080 executes various function applications and data processing of the mobile phone by running the software program and the module stored in the memory 3020. The memory 3020 may mainly include a program storage area and a data storage area. The program storage area may store an operating system, an application program required for at least one function (such as a sound playback function and an image playback function), and the like. The data storage area may store data (such as audio data and a phone book) that is created according to use of the mobile phone, and the like. In addition, the memory 3020 may include a high-speed random access memory, or may include a non-volatile memory such as at least one magnetic disk storage device, a flash memory device, or another volatile solid-state storage device.

[0281] The input unit 3030 may be configured to receive entered numeric or character information, and generate a key signal input related to user settings and function control of the mobile phone. Specifically, the input unit 3030 may include a touch panel 3031 and another input device 3032. The touch panel 3031, also referred to as a touchscreen, may collect a touch operation performed by a user on or near the touch panel 3031 (for example, an operation performed on or near the touch panel 3031 by the user by using a finger, a stylus, or any other suitable object or accessory), and drive a corresponding connected apparatus according to a preset program. Optionally, the touch panel 3031 may include two parts: a touch detection apparatus and a touch controller. The touch detection apparatus detects a touch position of the user, detects a signal brought by a touch operation, and transmits the signal to the touch controller.
