You can also allow it to unlock automatically whenever you're actively moving like walking while holding your device or speaking over Bluetooth on wireless headphones. You can do this by accessing your "Settings" menu, and then going to Security. Once you're done, go to Smart Lock and enter your PIN. After you open the Security option, you can now choose which aspect of Smart Lock you want to use.
