    Hello!

    I have a couple questions for you. Are you using home (which is based off your Google Maps/Google Now)? Or a dropped pin to detect location? These settings can be found under settings > Security > Smart Lock > Trusted places.

    You can tap on a dropped pin and remove it and try pinning again. But, if it's using "Home" that's a different story. You should be able to tap on "home" even though its greyed out and go to an edit page. You can delete the location from here and start fresh. However, keep in mind you'll have to re enter your home information into your Google services if you go this route. If you can expand a little on what you are seeing i'll try and help a little further!

    Thanks!

    Were you able to attempt trying to remove the location via the above instruction and re adding?

    Trusted home from my own experience seems to work better with just the pinpointed location rather than the manually typed one from Google. So if you try to add a pinpoint that's when it's popping up telling you it's already listed?

    Hmm. Those are definitely the steps to be taking so I appreciate that! Let me dig around a little on the Google forums a bit and see if I can dig up something further we aren't thinking of.

    I have similar issues... Usually at home, even though I have set it as a trusted place, it will not unlock automatically. I have followed the above steps also to no avail.

    I was able to dig around a little further. It appears on the Google forums that this is a very common issue that has been ongoing since roughly November (major consistency issues and pinpointing). Google has gone silent on a fix as of right now. My above mentioned suggestions were listed but did not work for the users over there either. Very frustrating for you guys I'm sure! I'm not a smart Lock user, but this would annoy me. Are you both on Android 7 or above/March security patch or above? I'll keep my eye on it to see if Google chimes in.

    I've had this problem with trusted places since long before 7.1 (I'm on 7.1.2 now). I'll go away on a business trip and come home and it won't work. The only thing that fixes it reliably for me is a reboot. It's such a great feature when it works.

    Yeah, also on 7.1.2. However, I've had this issue for quite a long time. Don't remember if it showed up with 7 or was around with 6.x however...

    I'd guess that most people have Wi-Fi access at home - wouldn't Trusted Connection work as a replacement for Trusted Location?
    Just an option.

    Yes that would be great if it was an option. Trusted Devices works like that, but it's only for Bluetooth or NFC connections. There is no such thing as Trusted Connections, at least not on my 6p.

    This has been happening for me as well. I've set both my "Home" location (Google account) and a pin point location, neither of which are working. It's been an issue for at least a few months. I wish Google would allow us to set up trusted connections, so that wifi networks can keep the phone unlocked. Or just fix the trusted places feature.

    Sigh.

    Doh! My bad - I just assumed that since there was a trusted device capability there would also be a trusted connection capability. Made sense to me that users would want that feature.

    I have the same issue and have tried the fixes suggested.. They haven't worked for me either. Hope Google can resolve the issue.

    I've just had success turning Location off and then back on. That got trusted places working after it had gone flakey again. Still annoying but much faster than a reboot.
