On Android Platform, you don’t have the Locking application as you would like it. I mean, there is only one, Protection when you try to access the phone and after that, you don’t have anything inside it?
Once you unlock your phone and you are at the Home Screen, you would are vunerable to data exposure. Anyone can read your emails, SMS messages, see your Contacts. Even though he just asked your phone for playing a game, you can’t restrict anyone to access some of your apps once they are inside the Homescreen!
Well Android Market is pretty big and can’t i find any app that can help me protect my personal stuff on my phone?
Answer is pretty simple and straight, ofcourse YES! I can! There are numerous apps which can protect your SMS, Pics, videos etc. But are they Fool-Proof Solutions to my Privacy needs on my Xperia X10?
Answer is Simple and Straight, NO!
Give me your phone!
Oh, you smart fella, you have protected your pics!
Don’t worry mate, i know a little bit bout Android as well.
Let me Un-install it! 🙂
The user can uninstall the App at any time or even better, download some other app which alternatively does the job of the app you protected! ( Like another image viewer, if you blocked your images! )
