Not using any pattern-, PIN- or password lock is a huge security problem, but reentering your PIN code a hundred times a day to unlock your lockscreen can also be annoying.
Delayed Lock is a solution to this problem: After unlocking your device, it will turn the secure lock screen off for a user defined amount of time or while you're connected to a certain WiFi network or Bluetooth device, just as the "personal unlocking" feature from the upcoming Android version! 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 at certain locations or to control the lockscreen through the Tasker app.

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
• Might not work with Bluetooth Low Energy devices

Device incompatibility:
• Some HTC devices: Pattern lock might not work
• Some Samung devices: Notification bar might be accessable even in locked state
Samsung Galaxy S5: User reported that after 3 days, the device does not accept the PIN/password any more. Make sure you enable the "Android Device Manager" to remotely change your password in case this happens! Also try to disable the fingerprint feature before setting up Delayed Lock

    This is a great app and did everything it was designed to do on my Galaxy S3. I loved it. Switched to a Galaxy S5 and the app became unusable. Highly recommend the app as long as you don't have a S5. I hope the S5 issues can be resolved, I miss this app's functions.

    Does exactly what I need it to do - Disables my PIN lock screen when connected to my preferred Bluetooth devices and wifi networks. Perfect!

    Would like to see an option to only play the locking sound when the device is actually locked, instead of when turning off my screen, or at least to play it again when the phone locks. There's already an option to vibrate on lock, so it seems like a natural addition. Otherwise the basic time locking functionality seems fine, which is all I wanted. SGS4
