Galaxy Note9 - Use Smart Lock (SM-N960W)

Your phone is so smart, it can unlock itself for you. Smart Lock automatically keeps your phone locked when it's not with you, and unlocked when your device is safe. You can choose to have Android unlock based on Bluetooth or NFC connections, trusted locations, when you're carrying your device with you, or when it recognizes your face or your voice.

Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
