AT&T LG G2 receives update with Knock Code security

lg-g2

The LG G3 has a cool feature called Knock Code. It’s an extension of LG Knock, which allows you to turn your phone or tablet on and off with a simple double tap on the display. For devices without physical home buttons, it’s really useful to just tap on a sleeping phone and have it wake up without having to actually lift it. Props to LG for implementing this feature on its hardware!

Knock Code is similar, but more secure. You can create a password by tapping four parts of a square in any order you like, with three to eight taps, and it will become your lock screen code. To unlock the device, you just tap in a square in whatever order you set. This doesn’t even have to be done in the middle of the display; it can be done anywhere. And best of all, you can do it with the display off and bypass the lockscreen entirely.

The AT&T LG G2 is now receiving an update to implement this feature. It doesn’t change the Android version, but is solely dedicated to adding Knock Code (as well as enhance Calendar and Exchange Active Sync). It’s awesome that LG released an update just for that, and I’m sure owners of the device will enjoy this feature. Have you tried Knock Code yet? Leave a comment!

    Feature seems like just a take-off from the 9-point swipe unlock pattern. Tapping or swiping, no big diff.

      I thought that at first. But you can do it without turning on the display, while it’s just sitting on your desk. That alone makes it pretty useful!

    I don’t find any relevant use of this knock feature. If accidentally someone double taps on the screen of the Smartphone, it will automatically get activated. Well, I am waiting for the availability of LG G3 in the US as I am impressed with its feature and definitely look to purchase its 32GB internal storage and 3GB RAM model along with 3000mAh battery that after fully charged on qi wireless charger, is expected to run throughout the day with its normal use.
