Although fingerprint unlock is by far the most convenient way to keep your phone secure without having to mess around with PINs or passwords, there’s still another way. If for some reason you don’t feel like enrolling your fingerprints into the Honor 6X, you can always take advantage of another secure and convenient unlocking method.
It’s called Smart unlock and it allows you skip the lockscreen — along with passwords or PINs — whenever a trusted device is connected to your phone. It can be your car’s stereo system, a portable speaker, smartwatch, or any other Bluetooth device. Go too far out of range, and your device will once again lock itself down with a password or PIN. Doesn’t get much easier than that. Here’s how you enable it:
- Open the Settings app
- Select Screen lock & passwords
- Select Smart unlock
- Tap on the toggle switch to enable it
- Select the desired Bluetooth device you want to skip your lockscreen
