DroidLock is a security application that sets your lock screen PIN code to the current time/date/battery resulting in an ever changing PIN that can not be shoulder surfed.


FEATURES
  • Time Pin
    1. 12H Time: If the time is 01:23, your PIN will be 0123
    2. 24H Time: If the time is 01:23, your PIN will be 1323
    3. Offset Minutes to add or subtract to the current time: Offset =10 and 12H: If the time is 01:23, your PIN will be 0133
    4. Custom Offset Minutes Value
  • Date Pin
    1. International Format (DD/MM): PIN will be 0405 (May 4, 2016)
    2. USA Format (MM/DD): PIN will be 0504 (May 4, 2016)
    3. 2 Digit Year (DD/MM/YY or MM/DD/YY): PIN will be 040516 (International Format) (May 4, 2016)
    4. 4 Digit Year (DD/MM/YYYY or MM/DD/YYYY): PIN will be 04052016 (International Format) (May 4, 2016)
  • Battery Pin
    1. The current battery percentage is set as your password: Phone Battery %: 52, PIN will be 5252
  • Geek Pin (Customized Pin)
    1. The user can choose any of the available components and form a combination and set it as the phone password. See the screenshots for examples. (PIN can be a combination of battery, hours(12H), month, minutes : 52010523)


ADD-ON TYPES
The following Add-ons to morph the PIN and to further enhance security.
  • Double: Doubles the PIN. If the time is 12:34, your PIN will be 12341234
  • Mirror: Mirrors the PIN. If the time is 12:34, your PIN will be 12344321
  • Sum: Adds the digits of the PIN. If the time is 12:34, the PIN will be 1010 as 1+2+3+4.
  • Reverse: Reverses the pin. If the time is 12:34, your PIN will be 4321

The pin then changes dynamically based on the chosen settings and options making it impossible to be predicted. Download this app to lock your phone and dance your way through piggybackers.

Working perfectly on Galaxy S4 running Cyanogen Mod 12.1!

Please add support for more complex passwords for master pin such as letters and symbols up to 64 characters long.

Thank you so much!!!

I'm surprised though, why isn't this already followed by at least 1,000 people?

---------- Post added at 05:08 AM ---------- Previous post was at 05:05 AM ----------

For phones that have a proximity sensor in front, would it be possible to add to the settings of the app an additional feature whether or not the proximity sensor is covered to make it work? An additional security feature for those that want it.
 
Not working Fine

Its working on my samsung galaxy tab 3 smt210 (Nolekat 4.4.2)but the number 0 is not typing instead the number 1,5,7 comes randomly

App works fine. Could you make Smart Lock work with this, please? I'm using SONY Xperia Z3 (D6603) on eXistenZ v1.0.5 (Marshmallow).

Why just 1,000? We need more than that number :)

We'll improve DroidLock App as time goes on and try to add the feature suggested by you.
You can check our future roadmap in the OP. We cannot give you any ETAs for suggested features.

Thanks for using DroidLock App :good:

Are you on latest beta version?
Did you try clearing app's data? (First go to Settings->Security->Device Admin Rights->Uncheck DroidLock App and now clear data of the app)

Downloaded but at work right now so I'll try it tonight (I can't afford to lock myself out of my device during work :p). Thanks for this, I've been waiting for an app like that for a while. I'll give feedback when installed and running :)

    To make it more difficult for someone to guess how you unlock by using the time, could we enter the md5# of the time?

    For example, 20:30 or 2030 becomes 2d579dc29360d8bbfbb4aa541de5afa9
    I'm sure you're kidding, right? :)

    So sad this has been discontinued, I couldn't find any other app that does the same thing. Other lock screen apps replace my android lock screen with their own insecure lock screen. This one didn't do that, but used android's lock screen itself & changed it's pin. Could have continued as an xposed module, but I understand dev has his own priorities. Thank you & R.I.P DroidLock.
