Unlock your phone

Step into your home's secure Wi-Fi network and these apps will disable the lock pattern or password so you can use your phone immediately.

Sure, typing in your password isn't such a big deal but on some days, every millisecond counts. When you leave your home's network, the phone locks itself up automatically.

Unlock at Home and Unlock with Wi-Fi are free but do accept donations.

Unlock at home (free).

Unlock with Wi-Fi (free).
