Issue/Introduction



Based on our research it looks like RiskMinder SDK turn on the proximity sensor when we try get the device DNA. (Behavior – when setting for proximity sensor is ON -> screen goes blank when users cover proximity sensor built on the top of the device. When setting for proximity sensor is OFF -> screen does not go blank when users cover proximity sensor) So the question is - Does RiskMinder SDK turn on proximity sensor when we try to get the device DNA? 

Environment

DDNA SDK 8.3 onwards

Resolution

Yes, we try to turn ON Proximity sensor to check if proximity sensor is available then again turn OFF to restore state. 
RM_PROXIMITY_SENSOR is the attribute and can be disabled from SDK if that is not required.
