If you are familiar with Blackberry 10 picture password lock, then it is now here on Android. BB10 users were like the only nerds that know how to unlock their devices with some kind of tricks on static pictures unlike our conventional Android password, PIN and pattern lock.
There may be number of picture password screen locks on Play store but Fstyle Co has designed a better performance screen lock called Picture password. This screen lock is smooth and does what it says. It is free but contains ads. You can at least maneuver over the ads through our earlier post. I hope ads won’t be a limitation.
Picture password app allows you to set up a unique key code (number) ranging from 0-9 which you will use to drop on any chosen point on your selected picture. Initially, during set up, you would be asked to set a secondary password in case you forget your chosen spot.
Other functionalities involve multiple pictures to choose from, custom picture from device gallery, colors, format display,time waiting screen, fonts. I have used picture password on my droid and it has been fantastic. In other to use this screen lock, it is recommended that you disable your normal phone screen lock to slide or none. This is to avoid double screen locking. It is not really cool rather stressful.
