Unlock With WiFi unlocks your phone when you're connected to your home WiFi!Tired
of entering your password every time you turn on your phone? 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?
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. This is great for SMS
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 battery saving options to:
Turn off WiFi when you leave home
Turn on Bluetooth when you leave home
Turn off Bluetooth when you get home
Turn off Auto Sync when you leave home
Turn on Auto Sync when you get home

This app won't work if your employer enforces a password policy on your phone. Some corporate Exchange email users have this.
that only PINs and passwords can be used with UWW in ICS (Android
4.0+). Patterns and face unlock are not supported. This is a limitation
of ICS, not UWW. There's nothing I can do about this.

Make sure to exclude Unlock With WiFi from your task killer apps, or it won't work properly.
With WiFi doesn't work on the Samsung Fascinate if it's been upgraded
to Android 2.2 (stock Samsung ROM). However, it has been reported to
work if upgraded to Android 2.3. It also doesn't work at all on the
Samsung Charge. I have received a report that it doesn't work on the
Toshiba Thrive tablet if it has been upgraded to Android 3.2.
