I'd propose a feature (option) to not need to tap the 'unlock' button when unlocking the phone with a security code. This would make unlocking faster as this is done tens of times a day.

(I didn't find an existing request exactly like this, but I'm also voting for relaxing the minimum amount of numbers for the code to four.)

Does not sound like an impossible request. However you do know this could cause your lock code to be guessed easier right? At least the amount of characters would be given away.

With 'unlock' button, are you referring to the hardware button on the side, that wakes the display up?

@Mohjive, the virtual "Unlock" button on the screen that appears once you have entered enough digits. Changed the verb from "press" to "tap".

@ssahla, yes, thank you. I am aware that the proposed feature may lessen security, but this might be an user choice between a standard security code and an 'express' setting with 4 digits and no unlock button.

@ssahla: ah, simple as that. Then this is a duplicate of this
