How to Disable Google Smart Lock on...
But before going to disable it, let me explain what a Google smart lock is.

Google Smart is a feature provided by Google. It locks your smartphone intelligently. It has three options for locking your phone: body detection, trusted devices, and trusted places.

On-body detection: If you have entered your password once, you can unlock your phone using the on-body detection option. It will not ask you to enter your password again. 

Trusted device: You can select the Bluetooth device that you trust in this option. You will not be prompted to enter any passwords if you are connected to a trusted Bluetooth device.

Trusted Place: In this option, you are prompted to enter the trusted place, and whenever you reach that trusted place, you will not be required to enter the password.

In the following tutorial, I'll use the Facebook application, but you can use this method regardless of the application. To remove or disable google smart lock on Facebook, follow the tutorial below:
