If you move around a lot during work or privately, it can be annoying if you have to unlock your smartphone again and again. As an Android user, you now have the advantage that you can easily fix this problem by setting the wearer detection.
Android: Smart Look – activate wearer detection
Carrier detection is a convenient service that Android offers and that you can set with just a few clicks.
- First, open the settings of your smartphone and select the “Security” section.
- Then click on the Smart Look settings.
- There you select the option “Wear detection” and press the switch on the top right. This will now set to “On”.
- This ensures that your smartphone remains unlocked as long as you are in motion. As soon as you put the device down, the smartphone locks itself as usual.
The problem behind the option
In general, the wearer detection is very advantageous and ensures that videos can be easily viewed while walking. This means that other applications can also be used comfortably while the smartphone is in your hand. However, this reduces the security of your smartphone. If another person takes your smartphone away or steals it, they can access your data directly. You should be particularly careful if you have taken out insurance for your smartphone. Read the policy carefully. Some insurance companies exclude liability if a smart look solution is used to secure the smartphone.
