Question What do hidden activities that can be opened in Activity Launcher really mean?

My phone doesn't have double tap to wake, only double tap to lock so I've been messing around with activity manager/activity launcher but didn't find double tap to wake. However, I didn't find double tap to lock either in the activities list even though it is there in the settings. Guess double tap to wake/double tap to lock are not activities but rather just on/off toggles so that's why they won't show in the activity manager/activity launcher... I don't know.

However, what I did find was "wave to turn screen on" activity (which is not available in the settings). I launched it and it opened the same screen but with no on/off toggle like in the picture attached.


What does this mean? That this activity is disabled on my phone? And since it is inactive there's no way to enable it via activity launcher or otherwise?

Activity launcher does give you options to find hidden menus but doesn't always allow you to activate those menus without Root. Try Nova Launcher it does have the ability to tap to lock but not sure for wake especially lock screen
