    Is there an app that will toggle the lockscreen with pattern? There are times - driving in the car and sitting at home, to name two - when it would be great to toggle off my pattern lockscreen so I just grab the phone and silence an alarm or such. And then simply tap a widget or app shortcut to reinstate the lockscreen and previous pattern without having to go back through the settings.

    I'm on Verizon in the US with 4.1.2.

    Hopefully there's newer information or possibilities??)

    You can use Tasker plus you have to use the addon Secure Settings. You must be rooted. You could create a task that disables your pattern lock while connected to your home Wi-Fi. Create another for when your connected to power.
    I want to warn you if your looking for a simple app this is not it. This is a powerful app that can allow you to control many aspects of your phone. Be prepared to be confused. Read the online documentation , read through some of the "tasks". If your somewhat technically inclined you will pick it up and controlling automating things with your phone!

    My personal favorite is the task that check to see if I'm moving faster than 5 mph assumes I'm driving texts that not only am I driving but how fast I'm going!

    That sounds powerful indeed, but I'm hoping there's a non-root solution.
