    I am using an Samsung Galaxy S3 mini VE with Android 4.2 and searching for a setup to switch between automatic screen locking easily, that means I want to lock the screen when I am in public and don't want to lock it, when I am in office or at home.

    I see 2 options:
    (1) Using the default screen locker with password (I think its called TouchWiz from Samsung). There I can setup up a timeout for screen lock of 30 minutes. That means after 30 minutes the screen is locked automatically, I cannot disable the timeout completely. I installed a Widget to lock the screen immediately, which I use when I am in public. When I am at home or in the office I would like to disable automatic locking completely, so I don't need to enter a password. I tried to use the "no lock" App, but it did not work, after 30 minutes the screen is locked. Is anyone using a Samsung device with "no lock" or similar apps?

    (2) The second option is not to set any password in the default screen locker and install a custom screen locker, which supports enable/disabling with a widget. Do anyone know such a locker? I did not found one, which is easy to disable/enable.

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to Android Central! Too bad you can't update to Lollipop, since the Smart Lock feature would be perfect for you. For versions earlier than Lollipop, you could try Llama.

    Thank you for the hint. Llama is a useful app, but the locking disable feature is also not working on my Galaxy S3. In the description the wrote that the feature is faulty and may not work. Any other ideas?
