To activate Smart Lock, follow these steps – In our example on a Samsung device:
- Set a secure locking method for your device under “Device Protection” in the first setting.
- Then the menu item changes to “Effect to unlock” for “Safe lock settings”. Tap on the point.
- Choose “Smart Lock” and enter your PIN to authorize the function on your mobile phone.
- You are now in the Smart Lock menu. Here you have access to the following options:
Reliable equipment: You classify one or more devices as “reliable”. If the smartphone is near these devices, it automatically unlocks using the smart lock.
Trusted place: You choose a location where the phone is always unlocked.
Reliable voice: Your phone can use voice recognition to determine if you are using it.
Wear recognition: By recognizing certain movement patterns, Smart Lock identifies whether you are currently carrying your mobile phone with you. Then your phone will automatically unlock accordingly.
But the smart-lock feature cannot be used only on Samsung devices. Since it is part of Android, it can be found in the settings of most devices – just search for “Smart Lock”.
