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).
Due to a bug in Lollipop, the apps functionality on Android 5.0.x is limited and might not work on every device!


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 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 4.0+
• 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

---------------
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

I do not guarantee that your device's data is unaccessible and will not be responsible for any damage you or your company may get because of an unlocked device. Please check if the usage of the app is compatible with the security policy of your company.

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.

Once a very good app now locks me out all the time Since installing it on my Samsung S5 (rooted KitKat), I have been having lockout problems once or twice a week! Entering my pin just won't work and I have to find a PC or other device to go to the Android Device Manager online to unlock it. This is horrible... it locked me out so I couldn't use my phone while out and about for half a day. I'm uninstalling this; works great on my S3 previously but I can't afford to be locked out of my own phone. Author really needs to resolve this problem if he/she expects people to use this software on newer phones and newer Android OSes

Love it! Updated to 5.1 and now it's working like it did with 4.4.4 again! Thanks for the hard work in making this compatible with Lollipop!

Not working on CM12s for OnePlus one It was previously 5stars as it worked perfectly on CM11s (4.4), but after the update which just rolled out (14/04/2015) the device always locks regardless of being connected to the wifi. The settings in the app are all the same as before and correct (OS was upgraded rather than clean install) I hope this gets fixed as I really like this app. Would you have to register DelayedLock as a Trust Agent ?

Works exactly as I want. A million "thank you"s for updating to work with Lollipop 5.1! I'm now done with the abysmal train wreck that is Android Smart Lock. There is no excuse to not have a properly protected device. All the convenience of no lock while still protected when away from your specified WiFi or Bluetooth zones, and it actually works! I've put this back onto all of my devices, even ones that aren't supposed to leave home.
