On-body detection: If you've already entered your password, you can use the on-body detection option to unlock your phone. It will not prompt you to re-enter your password.

Trusted device: In this option, you can pick the Bluetooth device that you trust. If you're linked to a trustworthy Bluetooth device, you won't be asked for any credentials.
