Google Smartlock for FP1

I have a FP1, with FP OS. From what I can see, Google Smartlock doesn’t work (exist) on my phone. Can I work around this somehow? Maybe by switching to Android OS?

I just had to look up Google Smartlock, I didn’t know what it is… :slight_smile:

Fairphone OS basically is Android (Jelly Bean 4.2.2). However Google Smartlock doesn’t seem to be available in Android versions prior to 6 (Marshmallow).

I’m afraid the FP1 will never be upgraded to Android 6, so it won’t be available for your phone.

PS.: But I think that there are apps, which can achieve similar functionality as Google Smartlock, for example this one (I’ve not tried it*).

*It might drain your battery, so stop using it, if your battery lasts significantly shorter than before installing it.
