Ding! You have a notification. And another. And another. Unlock your phone and check it–and again and again. But wait, you’re at home, there’s no danger of anyone snooping on your data or stealing your device, so why is the lock screen needed anyway? Turning it on and off every time you enter or exit your house is unceremoniously monotonous–and if you forget, say goodbye to privacy!
Look no further, for XDA Senior Member moneytoo has just the solution you’re looking for in the form of an Xposed Module that turns off your lockscreen when you get home. Magic? No, this module works by looking for a “trusted location” that is determined based on your home WiFi network. The module works with any type of lock screen, including the fingerprint reader on the Samsung Galaxy S5, and promises no wakelocks and no internet requirement.
Head on over to the application thread to get started on your lockscreen-free usage. The module requires Android 4.4 KitKat and the Xposed Framework to run. The developer also states that future versions could include a GUI for access points and a Bluetooth based authentication system, similar to what Android Wear offers._________
