You will now see list of ‘smart lock’ options available on your phone. Trusted Places and Trusted Devices are two very good options that let you unlock the phone without entering any password or PIN. This helps a lot if you are not able to use fingerprint scanner (muddy hands/fingers etc). Unlock the phone and if you are at a trusted place or if the phone is connected to a trusted device, the phone will get unlocked.
In case of a trusted location, you will be asked to locate the location on map and that will be saved as a location where the phone need not be locked. Once you move out of the location and are not wearing any trusted device, you will be asked for authentication.
