Finally it is time to get rid of hazels of unlocking the phone several times when the user is operating the phone. Google is soon coming up with the new Android feature known as ‘on-body detection’ for its smartphones.
This new feature will make sure that once if the phone is unlock then it will stay unlock until the owner is holding the phone or keep it in pocket but once the phone is not within the user’s reach then it will get locked and so the user need to unlock it again to operate it and this is solving the problem of unlocking the phone several times.
How it works? Most of the cell phones have accelerometer fitted within it, so the lock feature can feel when the gadget is in the grasp and when it isn’t by figuring out whether the phone is consistently in move.
Android police who gave the detailed report on this new feature added that the motive behind the phone getting locked once it is out of reach of the user is to save the data from potential threat and to maintain privacy and security of data. If the phone is left somewhere then the phone gets locked and no other user can check on it.
But if the phone is handed over to other person when the phone is unlocked then the phone will not get locked because the phone cannot sense users touch or which pocket it is in.
