*Please note that Golf Pad TAGS, and therefore SmartLock will only work on a mapped course, neither will function if you are playing an Uncharted course.*

There are some users whom are having trouble with Android secure screen lock and Golf Pad TAGS. Try these steps to allow Golf Pad TAGS to work with a secure screen lock:

  1. Disable 'Lock instantly' with power key (settings may have different names based on the phone model used)
  2. Set Lock automatically (after screen turned off) to 1 sec or more
  3. Some security apps can force a secure screen lock to appear despite the settings above. Generally, a sign of this problem is the user will see a secure screen lock appear after unlocking Golf Pad's SmartLock screen.
