Tech Tip – Android: Enable Smart Lock

If you want to keep your phone and data secure but don’t want the hassle of needing to input a code every single time you pick up the phone, Android’s Smart Lock feature is for you.

You will find Smart Lock in your security menu and it can offer different methods of bypassing the secure lock screen automatically.

For example, you can keep your phone unlocked when:

  • You’re in a certain place e.g. home.
  • When a device like a smartwatch is connected.
  • When the phone sees your face with the front-facing camera.

You can also have multiple Smart Lock modules active at the same time e.g. force the secure lock method only when you’re away from home and the phone is far enough away from your smartwatch to disconnect.
