As part of its commitment to security, BlackBerry embedded several different methods to secure and protect our personal information into its native OS. However, it is always helpful to add an extra layer for safeguarding data and other personal files by utilizing a third party application we've discussed before called Pattern Lock Pro.
Pattern Lock Pro is a lite version of Toysoft's more advanced customizable lock screen application SecureX. It is a simple application that prevents unwanted individuals from accessing their device by having users create a unique pattern. Users can set a simple pattern and a security question upon launching the application along with establishing the various lock parameters. These include setting a timer on when to lock due to inactivity, lock when the device turns off or when a system reset is performed. Once a pattern is set, users will be required to enter in this pattern when prompted in order to unlock their device.
If you would like an extra security boost to keep your data safe from prying eyes, Toysoft Development is giving away 300 free copies of Pattern Lock Pro. All you have to do is follow the instructions below.
