    I have my note 7 set up for the security pattern and Iris scanning. I would like it where it doesnt require that when I am at home, or at work. It is showing my home as a "Trusted" place, but still requires me to enter the pattern or my iris. What am I missing? Is there a third party app that would handle this better?

    Thanks for any help

    You have to make sure the trusted location is turned on. If it's grayed out then it's not on and won't automatically unlock. Tap the location and then the bottom should give you an option to turn it on. Once done you should on need to swipe your screen to unlock at that location. See screenshot.

    It is under security settings. Go under security then "Smart Lock" -- it is awesome .

    You can also setup things like when certain Bluetooth devices are connected it will allow the screen to just be swiped to unlock. Such as at work I have my BT headset connected so the phone doesn't require my fingerprint but if I shut BT off it goes back to being locked. Very convenient .

    Yup same for me. Sometimes it's hard at the gym trying to unlock via fingerprint with sweaty fingers.
