Do you have questions about when and how the App works?

The functionality of all Lock Screen Apps is driven by both the version of Android installed on a device and the way it has been configured by the handset manufacturer. The App runs at start up and offers protection after rebooting, however occasionally the App may stop functioning and in such cases, we recommend rebooting the device.

There can be conflicts between the Android Screen Security Settings and the App which may cause suspension of the device. This is resolved by either switching the screen off and on again or rebooting the device.

The App does not replace, disable, remove or uninstall other active lock screen apps. Other lock screen apps may need to be disabled or uninstalled although users can have more than one lock screen at the same time, but in such instances they will need to unlock each lock screen before getting access to their device.
