Delayed Lock temporary disables secure PIN & password lockscreens.
using any pattern-, PIN- or password-lock is a huge security problem,
but reentering your PIN a hundred times a day can also be annoying.
Lock' is a solution to this problem: After unlocking your phone, it
will turn the lock screen off for a user defined amount of time. You can
turn your phone off and on as often as you want without entering your
password/PIN/pattern again. After a certain time, it will automatically
reactivate your lockscreen, so no stranger can access your personal
Additionally, there is also a notification in the Android
status bar and a widget to immediately reenable the lock screen, and
free plugins to automatically disable the lock when connected to a
specific WiFi network / Bluetooth device or at certain locations.
DOES NOT WORK IF EXCHANGE POLICY REQUIRES A PIN!
Free trial version is available to test the app with your phone (search for 'Delayed Lock Trial'). PLEASE TEST IT BEFORE BUYING!
NOTICE ON ICS:
Since ICS you need a rooted device to get the pattern lock working with the app! No root required for PIN / password.
build-in lock delay of ICS only delays the lock when your display goes
off because of the timeout. To delay the lock when pressing the power
button, you still need this app!
