I have a Nexus 6 with Android 5.1, kernel version 3.10.40-geec2459, build number LMY47D.
When I first started using the Nexus 6, Smart Lock worked. After a while it stopped working.
If I open the Smart Lock setting under Security, all options (like Trusted devices and Trusted places) are Disabled by administrator
Possible suspects: I use gmail with exchange, I use Android Device Manager and I use Outlook for Android.
Is anyone of those apps supposed to stop Smart Lock?
On the Office Blog it states
Further, a device level PIN means we can take advantage of features like native device encryption, TouchID on iOS and Smart Lock on Android
I am not sure of how to interpret this. Does it mean that they "take advantage" of "Smart Lock" by disabling it?
I tested disabing Android Device Manager and Outlook Device Policy under the Device administrators and then rebooted the phone. That did not help.
I would really like to use both Outlook and Smart lock. Is it possible? Would it help to root the phone?
