Bug Description

This bug is related to bug#1606555. But this is also a security and privacy threat.

release of Ubuntu: Ubuntu 16.04

What's happening:

I lock my machine(Super + L key)
LightDM greeter is showing.
If I push hotkey to change keyboard layout, LightDM flashes and then it shows my desktop for a second.
It's a privacy risk.
