    Hey guys I'm trying to disable the key guard on my nexus 4 when I am connected to my home WiFi network.
    It is working fine using this tasker profile:

    1 ---> when WiFi connected to my home network the keyguard is disabled by secure settings
    for an exit task I have the keyguard to become enabled using secure settings.

    This works perfectly until I click a notification, at that point it prompts me to enter my password and will then continue to do so until I reboot my phone or turn the WiFi off and then back on again.

    After this it will work again unless a notification is clicked.
    It is quite annoying to do this and I was wondering if anyone knew a better way to do this.

    Thanks a lot!

    what you describe generally works here (at least with pattern lock), so it is probably something peculiar to your setup. after you click a notification, do you get a flash from SS about enabling lock or something?

    I've heard of people having this issue when they were not using SS with root. Keyguard can be a bit dodgy without root as its a system level implementation

    Can't you just add a task that on notification click > WiFi turns off, then back on?

    FINALLY!!, after messing with this for ages, it was always a bit flaky on the HOX with the notification thing, but this simple solution has worked for me it seems. Thankyou. :):):)
