NFCSecure offers Android users a fast and easy way to protect their devices. By utilizing NFC technology, NFCSecure prevents access to any of the phone or tabletís functions until an associated NFC tag is scanned. The app can be used in place of inconvenient PIN/Password unlocking or in combination with them to enable two-factor authentication. Stop walking around unprotected, and install NFCSecure today!

Features Include:
Code:
- Fast NFC unlock of Android devices
- Easily pair your device with multiple NFC tags
- Option to disable lockscreen widgets (Android 4.2+)
- Optional NFC lock delay (i.e. Require NFC scan every hour or every 3 times unlocked)
- Option to bypass NFC scan by typing Gmail credentials (i.e. for lost NFC tags)
- Option to bypass NFC scan by typing saved PIN (i.e. for lost NFC tags)
Requirements:
Code:
-Any NFC-enabled Android device running 4.0+ 
-One or more NFC tags with read/write access
Coming Soon:
Code:
- A full range of NFC tags including NFC rings, wristbands, and stickers
- Web portal add-on to enable remote device locking/unlocking and NFC tag management
- Corporate app suite with web portal, user/device management and provisioning, security policy enforcement (minimum PIN, require encryption, etc.), remote locking/unlocking/wiping, geolocation, and more. Contact us for customization options.
Permissions Required:
Code:
- android.permission.INTERNET
-- Required for version verification and authentication with App Engine (Coming soon!)

- android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED
-- Required for locking the device when you complete a reboot

- android.permission.NFC

- android.permission.GET_ACCOUNTS

FAQ
What devices are supported?
All of them! Well....if you have NFC at least.

What if I get locked out and lose all my keys?
Not to worry! Tapping on the app icon on the lockscreen will temporarily disable the lock, allowing you to authenticate with your Gmail account.

What NFC tags should I get, and where should I get them?
Within the app you can find a section called "Purchase NFC Tags". Here you can find a couple different sites that sell NFC tags which I have found cheap/cool/interesting/share worthy.

Can I use my NFC Key for storing other data still? I want to use it to trigger a <insert random action trigger here>
Currently, no.

Bugs and Issues
I dont think there are any. Please let me know what you find.

Awesome. Look forward to it. Any way of implementing multi user with android 4.2? Nexus 7 and such. Each kid has a key ring? Sounds legit

If you mean each key will unlock you to a off user, that's currently impossible until Google releases some open APIs for account management.

What you can do though is install the app on all the seperate user accounts and set different keys for each. The child would have to switch their account before scanning the key, but it would - i think - give you the result you're looking for.

Can't wait to try this at home. I have a bunch of Andytags(.com) everywhere. Should be interesting.

Its really best if youre able to get them on something you have with you constantly. The idea is to make it secure, not to be a pain in the ass to unlock your device. Try sicking one on your wallet so you have to tap your pocket, or maybe in your belt.

Someone saw this thread last night and contacted us about getting some NFC hardware to go along with our app, so hopefully soon well be able to provide some nice and convenient tags instead of slapping stickers everywhere.

Sounds cool. Is it possible to make this process even quicker? Like simply tapping on a tag to unlock the phone?
