To activate Smart Lock, follow these steps – in our example on a Samsung device:
- First, set up a secure lock method for your device under ‘Device Security’ in Settings.
- Then the menu item “Unlock Effect” changes to “Safe Lock Settings”. Click on the point.
- Select “Smart Lock” and enter your PIN to authorize the function on your mobile phone.
- You are now on the Smart Lock menu. Here you can access the following options:
Reliable devicesYou classify one or more devices as “trusted.” If the smartphone is near these devices, it will unlock automatically with Smart Lock.
Trustworthy places: You choose a location where the phone is always open.
Trusted voice: Your phone can use voice recognition to determine if you are using it.
Learn about wearing clothes: By recognizing specific movement patterns, Smart Lock recognizes whether or not you currently carry your mobile phone with you. Your phone will then be automatically unlocked accordingly.
But the Smart-Lock feature cannot only be used on Samsung devices. Since it is part of Android, it can be found in the settings of most devices – simply search for “Smart Lock”.
