Unlock your phone by just picking it up! No more pesky password or gesture PIN, just scan an NFC tag! This week’s project covers creating an NFC ring, putting an NFC tag in your nail polish, modding your Android installation to read tags from the lockscreen, and creating an automation toolchain to unlock the phone when the desired tag is scanned. I earned my Android skill badge on this one, folks!

Upon more search on similar topics i found that the same can be accomplished by installing Xposed Framework and its module named NFC lock screen off enabler with the advantage of not having to replace any of the original libraries. The installation steps are extremely simple, dinstall two “apk” files, the framerk and its module; restart and use the module app to authorize NFC tags.
