TimePIN For Android Auto-Changes The Lock Screen PIN According To Current Time

Phones are more than just communication devices. To some, they are a safe haven for personal moments and memories, and one does what one can to protect them from unwanted eyes. There are solutions to secure certain features within the phone such as AppLock or to restrict connectivity throughInternet Lockthe list goes on. New to this list is TimePIN, a free device security app that employs PIN lock in a unique manner.

Like most good ideas, TimePIN stems from simplicity. It uses the native Android PIN lock feature with a twist at the backend to ensure your device’s security, all without root access. Your PIN becomes the current displayed time. So, if you unlock your device at 8:45, your PIN becomes 0845, or if you’re using the 24 hour clock format, 20:45 will become 2045. So you needn’t actually remember the PIN as it will be written right there, while anyone attempting to get in won’t know where to start.

Also, if you ever have to tell your friends the current PIN, you won’t have to change it yourself later.

When you launch the app for the first time, it will ask you for admin rights and then for a default PIN. The latter will serve as a fail-safe in case you yourself aren’t able to unlock the device, and to protect the app itself from being access or uninstalled by someone else. Whenever you restart your device, you’ll be asked for your default PIN. Once that is done, TimePIN kicks in.
