Turn on Simple Unlock in Samsung Flow

When you're busy, you don't want to have to keep switching back and forth unlocking all your devices whenever the screen turns off. With Simple Unlock you won't have to. When your phone and PC or tablet are connected through Samsung Flow, you can use Simple Unlock to unlock both devices on your phone. It's quick and simple.

Make sure Bluetooth is activated on both of your devices.

Turn Simple Unlock On or Off

Tired of logging into your PC or tablet every five minutes? Simple Unlock solves this problem by using your phone to unlock your paired device. That way, you can unlock both at once. Here's how to turn Simple Unlock on or off:

Open the Samsung Flow app on your phone, and then touch More Options. Touch Manage devices, and then touch Settings next to the desired device. To turn Simple unlock on or off, touch the slider next to Simple unlock.

Use Simple Unlock

Simple Unlock is on and ready to go. Next time your PC falls asleep, you can unlock your phone and PC at the same time. Here's how:

First, make sure your phone is on the sign-in screen. Unlock your phone using the advanced unlock feature, which was enabled when setting up Samsung Flow - during pairing, you should have been prompted to set up a Windows password to access Samsung Flow, and to set up Smart Lock on your phone. You will be automatically signed into your device.

Note: This feature works from the Shutdown and Lock screen. If you've signed out or restarted, you must use another method to sign in.
