    Hi, forgive me if this has already been asked, it seems like a pretty obvious request to me (yes, I have already searched previous questions).

    Can anyone suggest an app that will allow reading AND replying to sms texts without first unlocking your phone? I mean a phone that is password/pin protected.

    Ideally, I'd like a lock screen that allows access to all non-sensitive functionality: camera, sms, calls, maps. The list goes on. The only things that need to be password protected are settings, email (as this can be used to reset other passwords), browser (where you may have saved passwords/credit card details), play store (or anywhere you can make purchases).

    Have tried a lot of replacement lock screens like GO locker & executive assistant, no luck.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    I don't think a lock screen app is what you need.

    Check out Notify. I think it does what you want.

    You can reply to SMS's. Doesn't look like the rest will happen.

    Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of the PIN lock?

    Hey, sorry for the overly delayed response.

    Just wanted to let you know that this worked for me and is the solution I am currently using.

    Many thanks.
