App lock no longer works


A few days ago I set up app locks on several apps and tested them. All worked correctly. Today I can start those apps and BitDefender does not prompt me for the app-lock pin.

    @brushman do you have Smart Unlock enabled? With Smart Unlock you can set as trusted the Wi-Fi networks you usually connect to, and when connected to them, the App Lock blocking settings will be disabled for the protected apps. To check if this is enabled, do the following:

    1. Tap 'More' on the bottom navigation bar.
    2. Tap 'App Lock'.
    3. Check the switch next to Smart Unlock

    Thanks for all your replies.

    As @Alexandru_BD suspected I had Smart Unlock enabled for my network and this was the cause of the unexpected, but correct, behavior. Now that I understand it, Smart Unlock is a really useful feature.
