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 - might still not work with Samsung devices
• 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

Shame As Jason said, shame the Samsung problem hasn't been solved. You asked for an example; tasker with the security plugin... Don't think it works quite as well (doesn't always lock away from WiFi, no security to prevent someone removing it when unlocked) but it does at least remove the lock screen when connected to my WiFi. Smart unlock doesn't work for me

Best app on my phone Thank you for clearly stating in multiple places that it does not support v5 Samsung. I was about to update today and saw your comments. I'm postponing my update till Samsung support your app.

Nexus 5 works great Works better than the lollipop built - in. Ability to set geodistances is fantastic.

Dissatisfied Used this for a couple years now. Loved it until I upgraded to Lollipop. Yes it's a Samsung, however, I find it hard to believe that while most other developers have found solutions to Samsung's Lollipop this dev's "hands are tied." I hope he's at least trying to find a work around. To say you can't support the most popular Android manufacturer is not exactly a profitable solution.
