Miffy Lock Screen Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Miffy Lock Screen?
The Miffy Lock Screen lets you unlock your Android device using a Picture Password on a Keypad featuring images from the iconic Miffy brand.
How does the App work?
The App comes with a FREE Keypad – Miffy Keypad – and you create your Picture Password using this Keypad. Your Picture Password is the same four images on the keypad, in the same order every time. You can change your Picture Password whenever you like.
The 12 images in the Keypad change location every time you see them.
Simple. Easy. Visual. Fun.
Do I have to pay to use Miffy Lock Screen by IconLogin?
No – the App is free to install and it comes with one free Keypad – Miffy Keypad. Other Keypads are available via In-App purchasing.
What happens if I forget my Picture Password?
During the set up process we ask to register your details (email address) and give you a choice of secondary password reset – answer 3 security questions, which will help us to help you reset your Picture Password, or a button combination on the device.
What happens if I forget the answers to my security questions?
Don’t worry, we send you an email with instructions on how to unlock your device. You will have to access your email account from another device or computer since your device will be locked.
How will we use your contact details?
The main reason to have this information is to help you reset your Picture Password. We will never provide this information to anyone else for marketing purposes, but we may (if you allow us to) send you emails about any new updates or new Apps we may launch.

Do you have questions about when and how Miffy Lock Screen 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 Miffy Lock Screen 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.
Depending on the mobile operator, the functionality of making calls and voicemails may vary. Even though the device may have been unlocked using the Lock Screen App and then call is made or voicemail is accessed, the device may revert to the Lock Screen on completion of the call or after the voicemail is finished being accessed.
