Screen lock timer would be useful! Lollipop's Smart Lock is pretty great out of the box, minus lack of WiFi support. This does WiFi, but geolocation doesn't on my AOS 5.0 Note 3. I enable GPS and it doesn't recognize anything. Is it more difficult to try geolocation based on cell towers? Also, screen unlock feature is great, but would be even better with another task to set a lock timer after display is off. Both Delayed Lock and the default Android lock has that setting..

Fingerprint lock? It would be nice if this app could restore fingerprint lock screen. So far it can restore only PIN or PASSWORD. Also if your security is set to fingerprint it won't disable your lock screen :-( Emailed support, no answer!

Fixed? The problem is not being able to set back the lock screen to swipe to unlock upon removal of the app is fixed on android lollipop but the plug-in still doesn't really work. When using trigger to disable the lock screen it does not disable but credit to the developers for fixing the previous issue so quickly! Hope the next update will fix these issues.

HTC one m7 After the 5.0 update no longer works. The only reason I use trigger

Disappointed that there's no pattern or face unlock. Rather wait for my device to get android L than change my habits. It does its job however, just not what I'm looking for.

Perfect For everyone giving this app a bad review you should lean how to use it for this app to work properly you have to activate it so it can make changes to you phones lock screen after you download the app and open it it takes you to your setting to activate if you want to uninstall you go right back to the place where you activated and simply unactive. If you don't know how to use this app (that works fine) you shouldn't rate the app with 1 stars and leave bad reviews. SMH....

Good concept... ...but bad execution for lollipop. Not aware of too many other devs that have gotten the lockscreen enabled/disabled with Android 5.0 so it's not terrible that Trigger hasn't either. But, the plug-in just isn't working so I dink 2 stars as a result. Hope it's updated soon.

Zero support for the application I would love to use this application more extensively as it seems to work fairly well but there is NO documentation on their website at all. No instructions, no discussion on how to work with the plugins, no nothing. Too bad, great product other than that.

Locked me out by forcing pin-only security I love Trigger, but this plugin changed the lock screen security--without warning--from fingerprint to pin. I was thereby locked out and not allowed any alternate unlock method even after 10 tries (just hitting OK also did not work). I fortunately had Android Device Manager installed and activated, thus able to remotely change the lock method and password from Google website. Afterwards, I noticed that only password and pin security options were available for the lock screen until I deactivated this plugin.

Had to factory reset! The first two days the tool worked fine.. but today i had to factory reset my tablet because unfortunately the pin I've set up was wrong... So all I could do to save my tablet was a factory reset. Luckily I haven't got any important files on my tablet because if i had, this would be a really stupid situation... Pls fix this! I uninstalled it now also on my phone because there are important files and i can't/won't factory reset my phone just because of your app! Pls update and let me know :) !

Not working with Android 5.0.1 This is useless for lollipop so far. Worked fine on cyanogenmod 11 though.

Great Plug in for tasker overall great but needs pattern lock option and not just pin/passwords. Deactivate Device Admin to uninstall people!

Useful for some But not for me. This will allow you to enable or disable a password for your phone. However the password needs to be supported by the app (ie no fingerprint scanner).

Doesn't seem to work on lollipop At least I can't figure it out and there is no help

Says wrong PIN?! How do I unlock my phone now?! It does not accept the PIN I set up.

Doesn't work with lollipop

Locked my phone with wrong pin I set it up per instructions and used it with Trigger to lock my phone when connected to a particular Wifi Network, and it changed my pin. Kitkat only allows you to factory reset your device in order to remove a pin or password. I'm going to lose important files if I have to factory reset.

Don't install this I have set up a PIN lock. And now my phone is deadlocked saying WRONG PIN every time I am trying to input a pin. What the hell is this?

works well Agree with other users: it works well, but needs option for PATTERN unlock.

Lollipop? Not working with Lollipop, shame, Smart Lock don't have unlocking with Wi-Fi so this could be perfect.

HELP.. Please help.. i'm installing this Trigger: Lock Screen plugin and set it's password to 123 but it won't unlock. i can't bypass it and i can't even unlock my device. huhu. Please someone help me..

Integrate with the main app

DO NOT DOWNLOAD It isn't really a worthwhile plugin, but the real problem is that you can't deactivate the app thus uninstalling it. You'll have to stick to pin and passwords for unlocking your device. Needs a fix now.

Meth, not even once. Can't deactivate. And now I cant set pattern unlock any more. No way to uninstall plug-in. I don't leave reviews, but this deserves it.

Very very useful Works very well on my galaxy S3. A very useful add on to trigger means I can have security when I am out but the convenience of swipe unlock when I am home. It is pin or password only though. It does not set a swipe unlock. I would pay for this.

Thank you! That's what I was waiting for!

Wouldn't let me deactivate, says the app is an administrator

Works well. Missing pattern option. It would also be nice to be able to disable completely lock screen.

DON'T INSTALL! BROKE FINGER PRINT SCANNER I've been using Trigger for a while, seemed okay. I installed this plug-in but couldn't get it to work. Couldn't find any help so I uninstalled the plugin. Now the Fingerprint scanner throws an error. Restart doesn't help. Galaxy S5 with Kitkat (4.4.2)

Pattern lockscreen needed I would have kept this if there was a way to set a pattern lockscreen

Changed pin Do not download this app without a backup plan. It force closed the first time it ran and changed my lock screen pin. I was lucky that I could use the Android device manager (since I use Google apps) to reset the pin but otherwise I would have had to factory reset like others. Absolutely ridiculous.

Update still not working The latest updates are still not working for me, using a Z3 compact with Lollipop

Very easy to use!

Deleted Not enough info to know how it works. So doesn't seem to work at all.

I have been using Trigger for a while now, but I have no idea how this plug in works. No instructions for use.

Pattern lock Would be great to have pattern lock option.

50/50 App is very good but how delete it? Android 5.0.1 . Device Samsung Galaxy S4 Active. I was try stop it on play.google (push 'deactivate') but get message about 'app will be deactivated for delete it' . In settings stoped button don't move. Help me please!

It's OK You have to program 2 separate nfc tags to turn on and off screen lock, should be a single toggle. Also prefer to keep the same locking setup instead of the new pin.

Wtv Not using this it's the THIRD time I've reset my device because it ALWAYS changes the pin or password when I set it up and no instructions either. So sorry but I just lost a lot of data because of this lock!

Disable lock screen only half done. I want it to completely disable the lock screen when connected to car bluetooth, desktop dock and headphones. By disable I mean no swipe to unlock or anything. - Galaxy Note 3 with Root.

70 percent there. It does work on my LG but. It only allows pin or password locking, so no pattern locks or "knock" locking if you use LG. Also the lock screen is still in place (it's just not locked). I prefer smart unlock which does away with the lock screen altogether and drops you straight in the home screen when you activate the device.

I will deactivate it!:( It Got Stuck In My Tablet Don't move help me

Anyone know the ADB commands to disable this thing? My digitizer is broken and I cannot enter my pin. I have tried various methods with no success.

Seems to work fine Have to set a password 6 letters long and with a number to work on note 4 , kitkat 4.4.4. Wonder what will happen if the device is encrypted and then this app tries to disable the lockscreen password...

Broken Only allows slide lock. I can't turn it off and it won't let me uninstall it. How do I get rid of this thing?

Works in Marshmallow but is missing an "unlock once first to disable screen lock" option

Terrible Impossible to uninstall this. Can't disable either. Bad.

Would be cool to have Parallax effect on lockscreen. Would love Samsung fingerprint unlock option.

Fingerprints Please add fingerprint support to the lock screen feature! Lacking!
