If you have a Samsung Galaxy S22 and want it to stay unlocked, it can be done quickly and easily.
The Galaxy S22 has a feature called Unlocked in Safe Places to turn on or off the phone’s security options.
What is Unlocked in Safe Places?
Unlocked in Safe Places is used when locking the phone with a password or fingerprint is unnecessary.
For example, when you are home, the constant unlocking of the phone can be annoying.
In this example, the locking features such as a PIN or fingerprint can be set to automatically turn off.
The security features will automatically turn back on after four hours or when you leave the location.
The Galaxy S22 uses Geo location to turn on and off the security features with a single or multiple locations that can be selected.
How to Keep Your Phone Unlocked In Trusted Places
- Swipe down from the top of the screen and select Settings (Gear Icon).
- Scroll down, find and click Lock Screen.
- Select Smart Lock
- If there is a Pin, enter it in.
- Select Trusted Places
- Click Add Trusted Place
- A map will appear; select the location of the trusted place
If you find the lock feature on the Galaxy S22 annoying, it can be changed to turn off automatically when you are in a secure location.
The feature will also turn back on automatically when you leave the secure location.
Secure locations include work, home, or any location where a pin number, password, or fingerprint to unlock the phone is not needed.
Since it is not needed to enter a pin every time the phone is used, this can be a very handy feature and make it easier to use the smartphone.
