Learn more about each Android Smart Lock option:
- On-body Detection – Unlocks your cellphone or tablet when you have it on you, such as when it is in your hand, pocket, bag, or purse. This method is less secure.
- Trusted Places – Will unlock your smartphone or tablet based on a GPS location on the map. This method will also remember nearby WiFi networks and unlock when in contact with those WiFi networks
- Trusted Devices – Unlocks your phone or tablet when it is connected to a specific Bluetooth or NFC device. This is perfect for Bluetooth watches, fitness trackers, car radios, Bluetooth transmitters, headphones, earbuds and even Bluetooth keyboards.
- Trusted Face – Unlocks your tablet or phone when it recognizes your face. This requires a photo for setup and will configure your device to search for your phone when it is unlocking. This method can be tricked using a picture.
