About this app

This is a 7 days trial version! License can be bought through an in-app purchase (1.99 EUR / 2.99 USD + tax).

Not using any pattern-, PIN- or password lock is a huge security problem, but reentering your PIN code a hundred times a day to unlock your lockscreen can also be annoying.
Delayed Lock is a solution to this problem: After unlocking your device, it will turn the secure lock screen off for a user defined amount of time or while you're connected to a certain WiFi network or Bluetooth device - just as the "personal unlocking" feature from the latest Android versions! You can turn your phone off and on as often as you want without entering your password/PIN/pattern again. After the defined delay time, it will automatically reactivate your lockscreen, so no stranger can unlock your device and access your private data.



---------------
Main Features:
• Delayes the requirement to enter pattern/PIN/password again after succesfully unlocked once
• No lockscreen while connected to certain WiFi network or Bluetooth devices
• Time delay since "Screen off" or since "Last unlock"
• Quickly re-enable the lock through the Android notification bar or a widget
• Widgets & Shortcuts: Toggle Lock, Screen off, Screen off & Lock, Enable / Disable DelayedLock
• Free plugins: Disable lockscreen while at certain locations or use the Tasker app to control the lockscreen
• automatically wipe the device after several failed unlocks
• Android Wear integration

---------------
General limitations:
• does not work on Android 4.x if your Exchange policy requires a PIN, if you setup a VPN in the Android settings or if you have installed any custom certificates (might work if your device is rooted though)
• pattern lock & FaceUnlock require root on Android 4.x
• does not work on all devices, see section Device incompatibility
• requires root on Android 4.x if full device encryption is enabled - might still not work with Samsung devices
• please use the "Uninstall" option from within the app to uninstall it
• only PIN & password lockscreens are currently supported on Android 6.0

---------------
Device incompatibility:
• some HTC devices: Pattern lock might not work
Samsung devices with Android 4.4: User reported that after 3 days, the device does not accept the PIN/password any more. That seems to be an issue in the Samsung ROM, please update your system if possible
• might not work on some Samsung devices running Android 5.0.x
• Sony devices: Disable Stamina or at least whitelist the app there

Legal information:
I do not guarantee that your device's data is unaccessible and will not be responsible for any damage you or your company may get because of an unlocked device. Please check if the usage of the app is compatible with the security policy of your company.


---------------
This app uses the Device Administrator permission. It is required to disable/enable the lockscreen PIN/password and for the feature to wipe the device after a set number of failed unlock attemps (if you enable that feature).

ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE, ACCESS_WIFI_STATE & CHANGE_WIFI_STATE - to unlock when on WiFi networks
BLUETOOTH & BLUETOOTH_ADMIN - to unlock when connected to Bluetooth devices
DISABLE_KEYGUARD - fallback method to disable the lockscreen
READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE & WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - for custom widget icons
RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED - to lock after boot
VIBRATE - for the "vibrate when locking" feature
WAKE_LOCK - for the "Wake to lock" feature
WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS - toggle pattern lock & usb debugging on some Android versions
WRITE_SETTINGS - necessary for "screen off" widget in some scenarios

Does what I wanted. Tried using my phones default smart lock location and it never worked. I don't have any Bluetooth devices and so my only option was my WiFi. This app made that possible and more. Still uses built in lock and still needs a pin at least once before staying unlock. But I will say the layout could be better. Works well and money well spent.

This is a well thought out app that solves the problem of having to unlock your device a zillion times a day, yet provides locking security EXACTLY the way you desire it to. App and Widget have ample settings and both function flawlessly on my old HTC Desire 610. Thanks Dev for a REALLY GREAT solution! FINALLY I am at peace! 😄
