You can safely ignore that message and proceed ahead. Let me know if any of the functionality doesn't work for you.

Okay. The previous time i have my master pin submitted, but after that the pin worked 4 or 5 times and after that i cant get into my devices, even after 3 wrong pins so the master pin is set. After a reboot again, no acces to my device. I had to restore my nandroid backup to solve this. I will try it another time now, but i was interested if the problem is new or many others have this too.

Till now, thanks for your help

I know the app is being fixed for Android n but if possible I would like to add a suggestion. Could you add the ability to unlock as soon as the correct pin is input? This is available using gravitybox but my phone doesn't work well with it.

We cannot implement this feature for non root users and for rooted users, we need to use xposed framework and add this add-on feature. The reason why we need the help of xposed framework is that we need to modify system files. I'm also using GravityBox for this "quick pin unlock" feature.

Damn! It's pretty useful isn't it? Thanks for answering btw! I guess I'll check over on xposed to see if anyone has a solution. This damned Huawei ROM doesn't play well with gravitybox.

I just wanted to say that I absolutely adore this app and I can't wait for Nougat update. I've had Nougat for 2 days and miss DroidLock immensely!

I haven't had an app that I've found indispensable in a long time until DroidLock!

Good job, guys!

The last update to the app was over a year ago. For those of us on Nougat, I think we should all face the reality that this is now most likely abandonware.

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.

    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.

    - Try this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2244741

    Q. Your rescue method is also not working and I'm a not a root user
    - Only option is to do a factory reset or flash your firmware once again

    Q. Now I hate you because of your app, I lost my data
    - This app is still in beta. You are testing at your own risk. We are trying hard to support majority of the devices. We can't afford own all the devices. We have kept a donation in-app product so that we can spend some money on buying the device and physically test it.

    Q. When will you release this app for all?
    - Only after we feel that we have supported most of the devices.

    Q. How can I help you as a beta tester?

    Q. Does your app drains the battery as it stays in the background?
    - Hardly 1%

    Q. I want to report some bug or issue.
    - Post it here
    - A supporting video(at least 720p) would be much helpful so that we can virtually look what's happening

    - Read the message it shows!
    - Now you can uninstall or clear data of the app

    Q. I want to translate this app.
    - We'll let you know about it.
    - But let us know if you are interested.

    Q. What will I get by testing your app?
    - Dynamic PINs which no one can predict

    Q. A persistent notification about your app stays and I want to disable it.
    - Don't disable it as it is in testing phase. We'll provide some solution to it later on

    Q. I uninstalled your app, but my lockscreen type is still PIN style.
    - The unlocking PIN will be your master PIN
    - You need to physically change it from your settings

    Q. Is smartlock working?
    - Only one the user says yes http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=66788380&postcount=70

    Q. I have a Huawei device
    - Read this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=66757123&postcount=58

    Q. I want to know how many times your(Havan Somaiya) device was locked up?
    - To be specific, it was 3 times. But I was lucky enough to break the PIN by guesswork. I managed to recollect the last successful PIN I used when master pin was not working.
    - Rescue Mode was not deployed during those development days.

    Q. I'm locked up and I know what is adb and it is configured with my system
    - Adb shows your current unlocking pin
    Search for "Op:" in the adb logs

    Q. I'm tired of reading all these questions.
    - Thanks for reading and I'm thankful to you for testing DroidLock for your device

    Q: How can I uninstall this app?
    A: Go to Settings > Security > Device Administrators and disable DroidLock. You can now uninstall DroidLock normally.

    Q: How to dismiss the persistent notification in the status bar?
    A:The notification is necessary to ensure DroidLock isn't killed by the system or cleaning apps like Clean Master. For now don't disable the notifications by going to App Info. Reason: On 3 wrong password attempts it will send a notification that 'Pin reset to master Pin'

    Q: Locked out of the device and forgot the time/date/battery options selected?
    A: Restart the device and enter master pin.

    Q: Does the master PIN stays the unlock password even after 1st Unlock?
    A: In some devices like Sony Xperia, it takes about 3 minutes for the app to initialize itself and set the unlock password as per the options selected.

    Q: I have found a bug. How do I report?
    A: Report the bug in detail along with the logs and a video to support your claim.

    Q: Can I help you somehow?
    A: Yes, of course!
    - Read the last question about supported devices and help us know if you have a device where the app doesn't work or has some problems.
    - If you could produce a video highlighting all the features of the app, we will make it our default video on play store.

    Q: Which are the devices used to test during the development of this app?
    A: All Stock UI devices and specific OEMs like
    - Nexus Devices
    - OnePlus Devices
    - Motorola Devices
    - Samsung Devices
    - Sony Xperia Devices
    - Xiaomi Devices
    Please let us know if you have tried any other devices and can ensure complete functioning of this app. We'll add it in our list.

    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? :)
