Default [MOD][4.4+] No Lock Home v0.5.3 (WiFi/BT/BTS Unlock) - S5 fingerprint compatible

No Lock Home is Xposed module for lockscreen bypass based on network connectivity - when you're home, connected to your trusted WiFi AP, lock screen will not be shown. Once you disconnect from your AP, your selected lockscreen will be displayed.
It's the very same principle as uses app SkipLock (formerly Unlock With WiFi). Why use No Lock Home instead?
  • Works with any unlock method (Swipe/Face Unlock/Pattern/PIN/Password/...) - including fingerprint reader on Samsung Galaxy S5 (stock ROM w/ TouchWiz)
  • Easy to setup (compared to complexity of Tasker). No Lock home only requires you to enable module, reboot and add AP MAC address (using just two clicks)
  • Free
Additional advantages:
  • Unlock based on connected WiFi networks, Bluetooth devices or Cell towers
  • No service, no wakelock, no internet connectivity - just a few method hookss within system keyguard
  • Crazy small apk
  • Using AOSP methods which are also available in Samsung/LG devices as well as CyanogenMod
No Lock Home is using only two hooks. One to disable lockscreen which is triggered once screen goes off (after testing various methods I came to same calls as mentioned here). Other call is for re-locking when screen goes on and there's no trusted AP. EDIT: As of v0.5.0 it's little bit more than just that.

Lockscreen is displayed in trusted environment only when:
  • First unlock after device boot (EDIT: No longer valid as of v0.5.0)
  • Some times on first use in trusted environment after use outside of trusted environment (EDIT: No longer valid as of v0.5.0)
  • Xposed required (therefore root required)
  • Only for Android 4.4.x/KitKat
Possible future features include more interactive GUI etc. It all depends on feedback - whatever some one actually will use this app.
I'm focusing on the core functionality for now.

TIP: You can add more trusted AP MAC addresses (or BT/Cells) - just separate them with semicolon (;).

It has been tested on Android 4.4.2 - Samsung Galaxy S5 (stock), LG G Pad 8.3 (stock), Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 (CyanogenMod). Since 0.5.3 it's also compatible with OnePlus and HTC so all Android (4.4+) phones should be covered.
It may not work with HTC devices.

No Lock Home is also available from Xposed Module Repository.

Trying now. Promises to be a great convenience for my clumsy fingers!

More WFI hotspots? Might team up with wifi scheduler app.

Great app. I'll start using now. Suggestions for future releases:

- Set a list of more Trusted MACs (with name for identification). EDIT: Just saw how to do it, but a more friendly UI is always appreciated.
- Option to set which type of lockscreen we want (No lockscreen at all/normal lockscreen)
- App icon on launcher

Keep up the great work.

Agreed, it'd be super cool if you could choose to have a secure lockscreen when off a saved AP and an unsecured/swipe lockscreen when connected to a saved one.

awesome. using it on my rooted nexus 5.
more than one AP would be cool and no lock while connected to bt carkit would be nice.
I used a tasker profile for that, but if home was pressed, lockscreen showed up regardless

other: Acer A700, ASUS Nexus 7 ²º¹², Moto Droid Razr XT910

Really great App !!! But it doesn't work on my N4 4.4.4 - stock rooted...
Install App + checked it in Xposed-> rebooted -> checked my MAC -> rebooted.... still nothing.
I use Pattern lock.

What am I doing wrong ?

Thank you

Ok. Works!

Working cool at Nexus5.

Enabling multiple hotspots would be good, and to make it through SSID instead of MAC. Also with BT carkit audio
