Do You Use a Pattern Lock On Your Phone?

Postby TinyJWRinLC » Sat Jul 22, 2017 2:10 am

Mostly because I could never remember the darn thing, I've never used a pattern unlock on any of my devices. After reading this article, I can say that I've never used a pattern unlock because it just isn't safe.

Locking your Android device with a pattern lock is definitely more convenient, but it’s not the safest method to choose from. Passwords to take longer to enter but will do a better job of keeping your data safe.

Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.
