Unlock With WiFi

Unlock With WiFi

Current Version: 1.0.10
Requires Android: 2.1 and up
Size: 204 KB
V1.0.10 update:

  1. Added an option to hide the Facebook and Twitter buttons in the settings.
  2. The Spanish version has been updated with some minor translation changes.
  3. Some of you noticed that there were options for WidgetLocker integration in the previous version. That was a mistake on my part. WidgetLocker integration isn’t finished yet, so those options should not have been visible. They didn’t do anything, as some of you noticed. Sorry about that. They have been removed.

Unlock With WiFi unlocks your phone when you’re connected to your home WiFi network. What does “unlock” mean? It means you don’t have to enter your password/pattern/PIN when you turn on your phone. When you’re at home, or work, you don’t need to worry about losing your phone, so why should you have to enter your password?

How does it work?

When you get home and connect to your WiFi network, your device will unlock. Then when you leave, and the WiFi disconnects, the device will lock again. You have to enter your password the first time after you connect to your WiFi network. This is so that if someone steals or finds your phone, they can’t just bring it to your house to unlock it. After you enter your password once while connected to your WiFi network, you won’t have to enter it again until you leave/disconnect.

What else does it do?

You can also set a lock delay, for when you’re not at home. The default delay is set to 5 seconds (you can adjust it), so when you turn the screen off, the device won’t lock until 5 seconds have passed. That way, if you remember something you forgot to do, you can turn it back on without entering your password. This feature is considered experimental at this time. It works on most devices, but isn’t guaranteed to work on all devices.

There are also options to:

  • Turn off WiFi when you leave home
  • Turn on GPS when you leave home*
  • Turn off GPS when you get home*

* This feature is not guaranteed to work on all devices. Android normally doesn’t allow apps to turn the GPS on/off, but UWW uses a hack that works on some devices.
