Setting up Extend Unlock

Extend Unlock keeps your phone unlocked when it's safe with you, such as when your phone is in your pocket or you're at home. After you set up Extend Unlock, you won't need to manually unlock the phone.
Note: Available Extend Unlock options vary depending on the phone model.
  1. From the Home screen, tap Settings > Security & privacy.
  2. Tap More security & privicy > Extend Unlock.
    Important: You need to have a screen lock set up before you can use Extend Unlock. If you haven't set up a screen lock, tap Set screen lock on Security & privacy screen. This will be your alternate screen lock method.
  3. Confirm your screen lock.
  4. Choose from the available options and set when you want to keep the phone unlocked. For instance, when:
    • You're carrying the phone
    • You're in a trusted location such as your home or office
    • The phone is connected to a trusted device such as your Bluetooth watch or car system
  5. Follow the onscreen instructions, and then press to return to the Security & privacy screen.
  6. Tap Device unlock.
  7. Next to Screen lock, tap Settings icon > Lock after screen timeout, then specify the idle time before the screen locks.
