There are a few things that you should keep in mind while using transparent wallpaper. If you have set a transparent wallpaper, you can not enable a face detection feature to unlock your phone. This is because the moment you turn on your Android phone, the back camera gets enabled. Secondly, this app will always use the camera of your phone which means that a lot of battery consumption will take place. So if you are low on battery, it is suggested to not keep a transparent wallpaper on your phone.

To remove this effect from your phone, you simply need to open the Transparent Screen and Live Wallpaper app and tap on the delete icon that appears on the top-right side.

Other than a transparent background, you can also set a beautiful live wallpaper where you can see a hot air balloon moving as you move the screen. Just select the LIVE WALLPAPER option and click on Set wallpaper. You can also preview the screen before setting the live wallpaper.
