Note 3: Disable default device lock and unlock sound, if using it from Screen Lock app.
Note 4: For animations to work:

Are you worried about exposing your PIN and Pattern while you unlock your phone?
Here comes Smart Phone Lock for the rescue.
Smart Phone Lock will set the current phone time as your unlock PIN for the lock screen. It will change the PIN magically on every minute! So, each time you unlock the device, the PIN will vary and you need not worry about prying eyes around you. The best part is, you need not memorise anything to remember the PIN. The modifiers will allow you to enhance the security to the next level.
1) Offset PIN - You can set a number (Positive/Negative) and that number will be added/Subtracted from the current time.
Lets say the time is 03:30 and the offset is +10, then the current unlock code will be 0340.
2) Reverse PIN - If you enable this modifier, then the PIN is reversed number of the current time.
Lets say the time is 03:50 and the PIN to unlock the lock screen is 0530.
Also, Smart Phone Lock provides Date PIN as an alternative way to change the PIN. If you use Date PIN , then the PIN to unlock your lock screen will be changed based on your phone date.
FAIL SAFE : If you forget the PIN , Don't worry.At any point of time, you can use your default PIN which you have entered during the app installation. Default PIN will act as backup code to unlock your phone. So, you can log in with default PIN. Even if you forget the default PIN, after entering 3 wrong default PIN , there is an option to get the default PIN through SMS to the registered phone number

Screen Time Parental Control is not the typical invasive "app launcher" that changes the natural tablet and mobile device experience. It is non-invasive, can't be uninstalled by kids, is simple to use, and just works. This makes it ideally suited for older children and teenagers, as well as younger children.
Screen Time is unique in that it was first created, and is now actively developed by parents that use it every day. We know what features help us manage Screen Time with our families, and we have lots of new ideas planned for future releases. So give it a try, and let us know what you think.
If you have any problems please take a look at our help pages, or contact us via the contact page of our website, since we cannot always help you if you post questions in the reviews.
Requires the device to be online and registered to your Google account.
This technique has been confirmed to work for thousands of users already, but does not work for every device type and configuration so your results may vary.
Please take the time to read the instructions carefully:
1) Unplug the charger from your device.
2) Login to the Web based Android Market using your PC.
3) Using the Web Market, install this application to your registered device.
4) Once installed, plug your charger into the device to activate the bypass.
5) Once bypassed you will see an "Activate" button. Click it, and your screen lock will be reset.
Some newer devices will not detect the charger being plugged in, so I have included a second option, turning the device off (or pulling out the battery) and back on again will cause it to activate the bypass.
If the app does not work for you it could be that your version of Android is not compatible with this technique or you have a custom lock screen which cannot be bypassed. Unfortunately there isn't anything I can do to support those devices.
There are a couple of reviews stating that the app doesn't allow itself to be uninstalled after use. Rest assured that the app can easily be uninstalled, either through the Android system or the button in the app labelled "Uninstall". Most people manage it but if you have issues support is just an email away.
