I work from home. So most of the time I am in one location, secure and do not need to lock the phone. It is is a realy pain having to unlock the phone all the time. Lock automatically only gives 30 miniutes before an atomatic lock and I see no way round that  - pity it does not give longer periods or even no auto lock.

 

Smart lock was an inetersting feature which should allow my phone to not lock in a specific location such as my house or place or work - but it does not work.

 

Pity there is just not one place were you can simply turn lock on or off.

Sorry to hear that smart lock doesn't work.

Do you have location services off by a chance? If its off that might explain why it doesn't work.

As I also use a Samsung Gear s3 Frontier Watch I use smart lock so that when my watch is on and connected the Note 9 stays unlocked. 

 

I have seen previous posts where people were getting mixed results with trusted locations and as such is a hit and miss affair it seems.

Thanks for your feedback. Samsung emailed to ask me to tick an Accepted Solution but unfoturanlty Samsung you have not solved this techincal problem.

The email from Samsung is automated as far as I'm aware which is designed to keep the forum ordered as some do forget to choose a solution. 

 

Accepting a solution then can go onto help someone else looking for assistance.
