Your phone has a lot of personal information on it, and that is why I always recommend that you apply a security lock screen such as a PIN or pattern. Unfortunately, that extra step of security can be a royal pain in the you know what. The problem is that the majority of time your phone or tablet is in a safe environment such as your home, car, a friend’s house, or workplace. Constantly entering a code or swiping a pattern is annoying during those “safe” times. It is the single biggest reason why so many people don’t utilize a security lock screen, and instead, hope their phone never gets lost or stolen. If there was a way to automatically disable the security lock screen when you are in those trusted zones, and automatically re-enable it when you’re at the mall, a restaurant, or anywhere else untrusted, you might go back to securing your phone like you should.
Well there is a way, and it’s not complicated at all. The immediate assumption is I’m going to recommend Tasker, but unfortunately, I could never get it to work after Android 4.0, nor could most other people. Even if it does work, Tasker is too complicated for the average person. You want simple right? Hit the break to get started.
