Don't you hate having to unlock your phone every time you go to use it? It's especially annoying when you're alone in the comfort of your own home and there's no one else that could get into it. Well, Android has a solution.

Google Smart Lock was introduced with Android 5.0 Lollipop. It eliminates the need to constantly unlock your phone after it's been idle. You just need to enable it and set up scenarios in which your phone can safely stay unlocked for extended periods of time.

Here is how to enable Smart Lock on gadgets with Android 6.0 and up:

Open the Settings app.

Under Personal, tap Security.

Under Advanced, tap Trust agents; make sure that Smart Lock is switched on.

Tap Back.

Under Device security, tap Smart Lock.

Enter your PIN, pattern or password; if you don't already have one set up, follow the on-screen prompts. You'll need to enter it any time that you want to change your Smart Lock settings.

Now, set how your gadget will automatically unlock:

You can set Smart Lock to keep your gadget unlocked when:

You're carrying your gadget with you.

Your device is in a certain place.

You've connected a specific Bluetooth device.

Your gadget recognizes your face.

Note: When you do not use your phone for four hours or more, and also after you reboot your phone, you will need to manually unlock it with your PIN, pattern or password.
