Trusted devices

To unlock the Samsung device automatically as soon as you get into the car, connect the headphones or connect to a Bluetooth device in any other way? With Smart Lock this is not a problem. Here we can add trusted devices such as radios, smart phones, TV, car navigation systems or any other Bluetooth device. If the device is nearby and the Bluetooth connection is established, the Samsung device will be unlocked automatically.

Note 1: The device is unlocked regardless of who is using it.

Note 2: Bluetooth has a range of up to 100 m. Within this radius, the device is unlocked, if connected.

Note 3: To select a device, it must already be paired with the Samsung device.

On-body detection

With the On-body detection feature, the Samsung device can remain unlocked while it is being worn. The position sensor detects whether the device is currently being held in the hand or whether it is in a bag. During this time, the device remains unlocked if the wearer recognition feature is activated. As soon as the Samsung device is put down, it detects this and locks itself automatically.

Note: The Samsung device cannot detect who is holding the device, so if it is stolen from the bag, for example, an unauthorized person may have access to the device.
