Not using any pattern-, PIN- or password-lock is a huge security problem, but reentering your PIN code a hundred times a day can also be annoying.
Delayed Lock is a solution to this problem: After unlocking your device, it will turn the lock screen off for a user defined amount of time (or while you're connected to a certain WiFi network or Bluetooth device). You can turn your phone off and on as often as you want without entering your password/PIN/pattern again. After the defined delay time, it will automatically reactivate your lockscreen, so no stranger can unlock your device and access your private data.
Additionally, there is also an optional notification in the Android status bar and a widget to immediately reenable the lock screen, and free plugins to automatically keep the device unlocked while connected to a specific WiFi network / Bluetooth device or at certain locations.

Main Features:
• Delayes the requirement to enter pattern/PIN/password again after succesfully unlocked once
• No lockscreen while connected to certain WiFi network or Bluetooth devices
• Time delay since "Screen off" or since "Last unlock"
• Quickly re-enable the lock through the Android notification bar or a widget
• Widgets & Shortcuts: Toggle Lock, Screen off, Screen off & Lock, Enable / Disable DelayedLock
• Free plugins: Disable lockscreen while at certain locations or use the Tasker app to control the lockscreen
• automatically wipe the device after several failed unlocks
• auto disable USB-debugging on rooted devices (on 4.0 - 4.2.1, not necessary on 4.2.2+)

General limitations:
• Does not work if your Exchange policy requires a PIN! (might work if your device is rooted though)
• Pattern lock & FaceUnlock require root on Android 4.0+
• Does not work on all devices, see section Device incompatibility
• Requires root if full device encryption is enabled
• Incompatible with NoLED, No Lock & some other apps
• Please use the "Uninstall" option from within the app to uninstall it

Device incompatibility:
• Samsung Droid Charge: Works on some device, but not all
• Some HTC devices: Pattern lock might not work
• Some Samung devices: Notification bar might be accessable even in locked state

    Worth 10x the price. Makes security practical on android.

    Works quite well on my Nexus 7 FHD and I have the paid version. Unfortunately, does not properly on the HTC One M8. Is incompatible with motion gestures.

    Works as described, sometimes. It always randomly locks when connected to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and switching between the two.

    This app is nice. I used it a lot but sometimes even when I entered the correct password, the phone didn't unlock. It says 'Wrong Password'. But I have a zip file which I flash to remove the password. Uninstalled until this gets fixed.
