Re: S9 Smart unlock by location not working

Don't know if you've tried this, but it worked for me. Go into your settings for this and click on your home address and turn on location. Been working so far for me.

Glad I'm not the only one having this issue! It didn't work on my S8 either.

This is not only a Samsung problem. My last phone, an LG, had the same issue. It used to work okay but lately it does not, it's probably a Google issue.

Smart Unlock by location working perfectly for me.  Device stays unlocked for 4 hrs as intended. 

 

Smart Unlock for Trusted device also working perfectly.  Phone stays unlocked when it pairs with my vehicle, or pairs with BT speaker, etc.

 

Have plenty of complaints with Samsung's skinned version of 8.0 Oreo but this isn't one of them.

In the end, it's the software experience that makes or breaks hardware. I've dumped the S9(minus) and gone back to a device that receives actual support, regular updates and bug fixes. DONE WITH SAMSUNG - SOLD THE S9(minus) - YOU GUYS ARE LIARS!

I have 3 devices running various versions of stock android. A 4th (this one) running with a skin.  Google issue?  I dont think so.  It can't be mere luck I have 4 working devices. 

 

Do you have "High Accuracy" enabled for location?  This makes a difference.

I don't think it's a google problem.

My Nexus 6 works flawlessly.

My Moto Z Force works as it should.

My S9+ doesn't seem to know where it is!

I have 2 properties, primary & secondary. I setup the location on the secondary property first and it worked. I also selected the option to stay unlocked in my car and on me. Both worked. After  returning to my primary residence I added the address and it does not work and now it does not work while the phone is on me or in the car.
