How to Turn Off Google Smart Lock on Instagram (2022)

How to Turn Off Google Smart Lock on Instagram

If you frequently use Instagram, you may have accidentally enabled Google Smart Lock, or you may have enabled it on your own, but you are now unable to unlock and log into your Instagram account. Because Google is preventing you from accessing Instagram, this could be extremely inconvenient and annoying for you. Let me know in the comment section if you enable the smart lock on your own. Or have you enabled it inadvertently?

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.
