Description

-----------------------
Tired of entering your password every time you turn on your phone? Unlock With WiFi™ unlocks your phone when you're connected to your home WiFi network. What does "unlock" mean? It means you don't have to enter your password/pattern/PIN when you turn on your phone. When you're at home, or work, you don't need to worry about losing your phone, so why should you have to enter your password?

How does it work?

When you get home and connect to your WiFi network, your device will unlock. Then when you leave, and the WiFi disconnects, the device will lock again. You have to enter your password the first time after you connect to your WiFi network. This is so that if someone steals or finds your phone, they can't just bring it to your house to unlock it. After you enter your password once while connected to your WiFi network, you won't have to enter it again until you leave/disconnect. This is great for SMS texting!

What else does it do?

The following features are disabled in the free version, but in the full version, you can set a lock delay, for when you're not at home. The default delay is set to 5 seconds (you can adjust it), so when you turn the screen off, the device won't lock until 5 seconds have passed. That way, if you remember something you forgot to do, you can turn it back on without entering your password.

There are also battery saving options to:

Turn off WiFi when you leave home
Turn on Bluetooth when you leave home
Turn off Bluetooth when you get home
Turn off Auto Sync when you leave home
Turn on Auto Sync when you get home
WidgetLocker integration (New!)

Works on tablets too!

Free vs Full

The free version allows you to define one home WiFi network, while the full version allows you to define unlimited home networks. You could use it home, work, etc. The full version has all the options enabled, like lock delay. Users of the full version are also entitled to email support. The free version does NOT show ads.

Known Limitations:

WARNING: This app doesn't work on some phones. Please read this description carefully, and the FAQ.

Note that only PINs and passwords can be used with UWW in ICS (Android 4.0+). Patterns and face unlock are not supported. This is a limitation of ICS, not UWW. There's nothing I can do about this.

Unlock With WiFi is incompatible with Lookout, Juice Defender, Green Power, BatteryFu and other apps. See the FAQ. http://benhirashima.com/unlockwithwifi/faq

Make sure to exclude Unlock With WiFi from your task killer apps, or it won't work properly.

Unlock With WiFi doesn't work on the Samsung Fascinate if it's been upgraded to Android 2.2 (stock Samsung ROM). However, it has been reported to work if upgraded to Android 2.3. It also doesn't work at all on the Samsung Charge. I have received a report that it doesn't work on the Toshiba Thrive tablet if it has been upgraded to Android 3.2.
