This Android widget allows you to quickly activate or deactivate the LockScreen pattern. It’s 1×1 size takes up as little homescreen space as possible. When the door is closed, the LockScreen pattern is on. When it’s open, the LockScreen pattern is off. So when you’re not worried about losing your phone or having someone else pick it up and go through any of your personal information, turn the LockScreen off to avoid performing your unlock pattern repeatedly. Admittedly, going through your unlock pattern is a fairly quick process, but this widget does have advantages.

To add the widget, press: Home > Menu > Add > Widgets > Fantasy LockScreen, or long press on your homescreen.

To setup or change your unlock pattern, press: Settings > Security & Location > Change unlock pattern.


  • 1×1 size minimizes real-estate usage
  • As simple of a widget as it gets!

Areas for improvement:

  • Widget icon could be more attractive, or there could be multiple design options to choose from.

Conclusion: If you find yourself annoyed by repeatedly unlocking your phone, this quick toggling widget is just for you!
