My Android application runs even if the screen rotation is disabled in the operating system. How can I fix this?

I am developing an Android app that has full support for landscape mode. All of my activities have the following properties set in the manifest:

android:configChanges="keyboardHidden|locale|orientation"
android:screenOrientation="sensor"

However, if I disable rotation in the phone's Screen settings, my app still rotates when the phone is rotated. This kind of bothers me; it seems like the whole point of a system-level setting is moot if it can be overriden by an individual app. How can I fix this so it follows the system-level setting while still behaving properly if screen rotation is enabled on the phone?


You could try using

android:screenOrientation="user"
