Wear Unlock for Android Wear


A simple Android app that enables functionality similar to the "Trusted Device" unlock features for Android Wear that will eventually show up in Android L. Supported on Jellybean and above.

WARNING: Behavior not tested on encrypted or rooted devices. Use at your own risk.

**
While the app let's you install this on Android 5.0+ (Lollipop) devices, it is recommended that you use the built-in "Trusted Device" feature of Lollipop instead of Wear Unlock.
**

Once you have paired your Android Wear device to this app, it will lock your device with a specified password when your Android Wear device has been disconnected - and unlock your device whenever your Android Wear device is connected.

- Only PIN and password lock modes are supported at this time.
- The developer takes no responsibility for the security of your device while Wear Unlock is installed.

Recent changes:
- Option to lock device immediately and turn off screen when watch has been disconnected.

Perfect!!! Just as described!! This app will unlock your device when it detects your wearable but will lock it if it don't!! I tried this on my OnePlus one on android 4.4.4 KitKat and it's just amazing and perfect!!! I have to admit I no longer use it cause I upgraded to CM 12 and no longer need it cause I have android 5.0.2 and it comes with smart lock but if I were to downgrade back to KitKat this would be one of the first apps I'll get!!! Idk but I'd like to give the creator of this app more money a donation!!

This app is worthless The one thing this app is suppose to do doesn't work! I am running 4.4 on my GNote 2 and wearing my Sony SW3 and I have to enter my pin every time. Thankfully I was still able to get a refund.

Good Idea, Bad Execution This app does more than lock the phone. When you walk away from your phone you get hit with an "Android wear isn't responding" message on the watch (LG G Watch, in my case) which often proves difficult to dismiss and enters the watch into a period of major battery loss and over-heating. Wasn't 100% sure it was this app until I deleted it. Also on the phone, even when the phone was near, notifications would say something like "unlock to see sensitive" when the phone was not even locked. This behavior also went away when I deleted the app. Though Android Wear is somewhat dependent on your phone, the watch is not supposed to be entirely crippled when you happen to walk away from it. Watch performs 300% better without this app. Just sayin'.
