Smart Lock: set up voice activation – how it works


With Android, Smart Lock supports intelligent and permanent unlocking as well as the option of unlocking the smartphone solely with your voice. This method is not very safe in practice because your voice can easily be adjusted. If you still want to use the feature, you can simply activate it.
