Knock Code update sent out to owners of international LG G2
Back in March, we told you that LG G2 owners were going to receive an update giving them the ability to use LG's new Knock Code. This is a two to eight tap pattern that you create in order to unlock the phone. While testing it for its inclusion on the LG G Pro 2, more than 50% said it was the most anticipated new feature on the handset, which says something great about Knock Code, or something not terribly flattering about LG G Pro 2 testers.

One of our loyal readers sent us a couple of screenshots from an international version of the LG G2, the LG D802. When LG announced back in March that Knock Code would be eventually made available for the LG G2 and the LG G Flex, it did say that the rollout would be done at different times to different countries.

Knock Code is an enhanced version of LG's KnockOn, which debuted on the LG G2. With the rear placement of the power and volume buttons on the device, LG wanted a way that users could awaken the phone if it were lying on a table with the screen-side up. With KnockOn, tapping on the screen twice will awaken it. To reiterate, Knock Code adds the ability for the user to select a two to eight tap pattern that will also serve as a way to quickly unlock your phone.


Thanks anonymous tipster!

Got it! Works perfect, responsive. You can set up a lock as a combination of 2 to 8 taps on 4 quarters of screen, and have a PIN as a backup. This is such a nice idea how to both wake up and to unlock the screen in one go.

Needs to fix: Knock Code and and other simple unlocks are disabled when you have a VPN profile setup. There really should be an option to have an unsecure and a secure VPN profile. Not everyone uses a VPN for top secret stuff. All lock screen options shoud be available when there are no secure VPN accounts. Next, when you have any kind of screen lock, the "lock screen short cuts" are disabled. Why should people who secure their phones get banned from this great feature? This could easily be intergrated into any of the lock screens. So lets say you use a passcode lock. Your shortcuts should be displayed at the bottom along with keypad. You input the code, and instead of pressing enter, you press one of the shortcuts. In any case, keep up the good work. I can't wait to see what innovations you come up with for the G4. I own 2 iPads but Apple can suck my D**K with their slow ass no innovation BS for their phones!
