Android Central Question

I´ve just experienced this with my Xiaomi Mi9 smartphone running on Android 10.

The smartphone was on the desk next to me (I hadn´t touched it), and suddenly I saw *clearly* that the keys were being used to enter an unlock screen password. This happened very quick, it was tried (by whom??) several times.

Bluetooth was ON, but I didn´t get any request to authorize access.

Is this something anyone of you has ever heard of?

Welcome to Android Central! It may have just been phantom touches, which can happen sometimes with a poorly fitted screen protector. If you have one on, try removing it, clean the screen thoroughly, and don't put the protector back on. Then see if it happens again.
