Samsung Galaxy S7 Smart Lock - Adding a Bluetooth device

When you connect your Samsung Galaxy S7 to a Bluetooth device, such as a car kit, you can set your smartphone to be automatically unlocked when connected to this device. This is very useful, since you do not always have to unlock the Samsung Galaxy S7 in your car while driving.

The "Smart Lock" function makes this possible. We now show you how to add a Bluetooth device to the list of trustworthy devices on the Samsung Galaxy S7 within Smart Lock.
