Delayed Lock

Delayed Lock


This is a 7 days trial version! License can be bought through an in-app purchase (1.99 EUR / 2.99 USD).
The app does not run on Samsung and OPO devices running Android 5.0.x due to a bug in their system software!


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 upcoming Android version! 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.
Additionally, there is also an optional notification in the Android status bar and a widget to immediately reenable the lock screen, and free plugins to automatically keep the device unlocked while at certain locations or to control the lockscreen through the Tasker app.



---------------
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
• Incompatible with NoLED, No Lock & some other apps
• Please use the "Uninstall" option from within the app to uninstall it

---------------
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. Make sure you enable the "Android Device Manager" to remotely change your password in case this happens! Also try to disable the fingerprint feature before setting up Delayed Lock
• Not compatible with Samsung devices running Android 5.0.x
• Sony devices: Disable Stamina or at least whitelist the app there

User reviews of Delayed Lock
I love u but I have to say goodbye now. CM7 has this built in! worked great on both g2 in g2x. Nag screen only shows on reboot so no problem.
Apr 1, 2013
Hard to discover whether I like this app or not due to the constantly annoying nagware. Might consider going to a trial that expires rather than annoy the crap out of potential customers. About to be uninstalled.

Awesome on S4, 4.4.2 Just what I needed. SO feature rich! Solves a tremendous PITA problem. Wish I had found this long ago. Major kudos to the dev.

Usefull, but have to reboot everytime I use the widgets. I would rated it better if I would not be forced to reboot the phone each time I tried to (un)lock from a widget, because the main layer of screen turns dark and there is no way to recover from that only by restarting the phone. Installed on MotoG 2014 with Android 5.0.2.

Not working on Lollipop 5.0.2 I love the app and have been using it for a long time, but it won't work at all for me on 5.0.2 on my s4. The notification says it's unlocked but even with that when I try and open my phone again I always have to enter my pattern. I've tried with a pin as well. Oh, and I'm not running a Samsung rom, but PACman.
