I just published a big update available on Google Play and XDA Labs. Please test it out. Lock Me Out works differently now. No more messing around with your lock screen PIN!

2.0.0 (May 20, 2016)
-No more changing device passwords/PIN! (safer)
-Lock Me Out will simply lock you back out if you unlock the device during your chosen lock out period.
-Updated design
-Added About dialog

Soo many negative replys on playstore I'm afraid to use it.

Anyone here using this app ?

Those are mostly people who either didn't understand the app or had task killers that killed Lock Me Out before it could reset the PIN. Since the last update I completely changed the way it works so that PIN/password changing is no longer required. Now if a task killer were to kill it, it would just end the lock out. Should be pretty safe!

Just noticed that you changed the way it locks out the user, so i guess you won't have any issues with this new security feature in Android N.

The new way you lock users out of devices are not so effective, as it can be removed via safe mode..

Yea well better than being banned off the Play store! This is a lot safer for users with task killers too.
