Use Smart Lock on Your Phone

Your phone is so smart, it can unlock itself for you. Smart Lock automatically unlocks your phone by recognizing signals like your phone's proximity to your home, your car’s Bluetooth system, or your smartwatch.

• Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

• Smart Lock feature is not available on all carriers.

Smart Lock

If you hate constantly typing in your PIN or password, use Smart Lock to keep it unlocked whenever it's nearby. You can even unlock with your voice. Check it out:

Your phone must have a screen lock enabled to access the Smart Lock function.

First, open Settings and then touch Search. Search for and select Smart Lock, and then enter your lock screen credentials. Select the desired option.

  • On-body detection: Just unlock once and your phone stays unlocked as long as you keep holding your phone or carrying it on you.

  • Trusted places: Add a location where the phone will stay unlocked.

  • Trusted devices: Add a trusted device to keep the phone unlocked when connected.

  • Trusted voice: Let "Ok Google" unlock your phone when the sound matches your voice.
