For all android users who have been longing for some kind of privacy on their phones, PIN Genie Inc has delivered a high quality security app to keep all those prying eyes off your phone. Called PIN Genie Locker – Screen Lock, this android app is an act of pure innovation.
Imagine you have to go to the bathroom and your phone with very sensitive information is on the charger, before you go you are obliged to go grab your precious and then make a run for it to the bathroom. PIN Genie makes sure no one has to worry about security ever again. It is an app that locks your phone when it goes idle and demands security clearance before using it again. This can be in form of a genius new 4 button PIN or the usual pattern locks.
What are the features of PIN Genie Locker – Screen Lock
One of the best features of this app is that it logs all information when someone tries to access your phone and puts in the wrong code. This log is directly sent to your email to notify you that someone is trying to snoop or steal your phone. There is an amazing option to take a quick photo of the intruder using the front camera, that way you will know exactly who the culprit is. The user can set exactly after how many tries the app is supposed to take the selfie.
The app is linked to your email, making it is easy to recover or reset a forgotten 4 button PIN. Speaking of the 4 button PIN, this is new technology that the developers of the app have patented and is expected to change the way security apps work in the near future. This PIN pad makes it is easy to remember your 4 digit code at the same time making extra difficult for anyone to guess it. To add on to the security, after every entry the app will reshuffle the number orders on the pad and make it extra difficult to crack.
There are consequences for entering the wrong pin 3 times, the app will simply lock the phone, there by preventing the intruder from using the phone.
Another nice touch added by PIN Genie Inc is the choice on the screen lock themes. There are different screen lock themes and wall papers to choose from, with the most stand out theme being the 2016 US general election theme featuring Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Customize-able themes are a nice touch that users are going to really appreciate, bravo PIN Genie!
