Hello Mi fans,
I hope you are having a great time on Mi Community. Lately, I have seen many people complaining about a feature which they consider it as a bug. The screenshot is attached below.

As you can see in the screenshot it says “Don’t cover the orange area of the screen”
I would like to inform users that it is not a bug but a feature that prevents Accidental Dial-ups and Accidental receiving of calls when our device is in our pocket.
The screen also occurs when we try to unlock our devices and we accidentally cover the orange area, which helps us with accidental pocket unlock for devices like Redmi Note 3, Redmi 3s Prime or any Mi device which has Fingerprint Sensor at the back of Device or any other Mi device that doesn't have FPS.
The screen appears when our hand covers the proximity sensor of our device or the orange area as shown in the screenshot.
Many of you would be thinking that how can we enable or disable the feature.
There is an option to enable and disable it.
Users may use the below steps to enable or disable the feature.
1. Go to Settings.
2. Lock Screen & Passwords.
3. Locate Prevent Pocket dials and enable it (for users who want to use the feature) or disable it (for users who don't want to use it).
Voila, and you won’t see it again.
The other way to avoid it from happening is that you don’t cover the orange area.
I hope it helped you and provided you all enough information about it.
Signing off. Thank you!
