With this simple plug-in for Locale you can automatically enable your lockpattern. For example, disable your unlock pattern at home, but enable it by default.
Go to Settings -> Location & security to setup a pattern before you enable the pattern with this plug-in.
* This plugin does not work on Android 2.2 or higher. Google moved the lock pattern setting to their secure settings, so it cannot be changed outside the regular settings menu. Check out my Password Lock plug-in as a replacement if you're on Android 2.2.
* This free app is ad supported and may contain ads in the notification tray and/or home screen.
