New Android feature keeps phone unlocked in user’s pocket

Google may soon come up with a new Android feature that would help smartphone users get rid of the hassle of unlocking their phones dozens of times a day when it's simply unnecessary.
The tech giant is working on a feature, known as 'on-body detection', that would make sure that a smartphone remained unlocked while the user had it on person, which could possibly solve the problem of unlocking it multiple times.
The security option has been joined by other useful security options like trusted places, trusted devices, and trusted faces which might appeal some users.
However, the feature would not be able to identify the user and the smartphone would most likely remain unlocked even if it was with someone else or a pickpocket, since it uses the device's accelerometer to determine its continual move.
