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).


Not using any pattern-, PIN- or password-lock is a huge security problem, but reentering your PIN code a hundred times a day 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
• auto disable USB-debugging on rooted devices (on 4.0 - 4.2.1, not necessary on 4.2.2+)

---------------
General limitations:
• Does not work if your Exchange policy requires a PIN! (might work if your device is rooted though)
• Pattern lock & FaceUnlock require root on Android 4.0+
• Does not work on all devices, see section Device incompatibility
• Requires root 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
• Might not work with Bluetooth Low Energy devices

---------------
Device incompatibility:
• Some HTC devices: Pattern lock might not work
• Some Samung devices: Notification bar might be accessable even in locked state
• Samsung Galaxy S5: 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

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.

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.

Excellent App - Reliably Works 100% This app is a huge timesaver. I use my phone at home often and I don't have to enter the PIN while at home. However, when I leave and I want my phone to lock in case it's lost away from home then it locks. I would strongly recommend this app as it's very stable and the creators keep it updated and working.

Almost perfect This app works much better than any of the alternatives I tried. My only issue is the requirement to have lock set immediately. I have a case on my phone, so when I'm out and I close the case I always have to reenter my password when. I open it (rather than every few min of inactivity) . Other than this it's a great app that does exactly what it promises!

Great App for securing my phone Works seamlessly on kit kat. Location plug in is hit or miss. I would like the option of turning on GPS for better accuracy. Update: Location issue is resolved! Nice work devs. Solid.
