1. SkipLock
Lock screens are an essential part of your phone. You might press a button accidentally. Someone unwanted can even access your phone if it’s not locked. But at the same time, lock screens can be a pain. You’ll be required to open your phone every time you need to do a certain task. This can waste time. It will also test the level of your patience, depending on your temperament.

SkipLock is what its name implies. It allows you to skip your lock screen to do your work. It depends on the locations you choose. Your device will automatically detect your location via your Wi-Fi.

So, depending on whether you are at home and connected to your Wi-Fi, it’ll allow you to skip your lock screen. You can manually add the lists of Wi-Fi networks. That way, SkipLock will allow you to skip your lock screen depending on whichever Wi-Fi you’re connected to.
