Frequently Asked Questions
If you can’t find the answer to your question here, please ask me directly. Don’t post questions as comments on Market, because developers can’t answer them.
How to set the password?
Please push Menu button on your phone, and go to Preferences. There you may click Set unlock password and type in some digits. I will try to improve this in nearest update. There’s a bug now (v.0.3) first time you open Preferences, password is reset to blank. If you change it immediately – no problems. Otherwise, just press OK when password is asked next time.
What to do if I forgot my password?
Not a problem! Please ask me for built-in ‘secret’ code that will reset password with 24 hours delay providing order number from Google Checkout to verify your identity. Otherwise, factory reset is required to remove all installed applications and the data (including Protector and all stored Gmail data.)
When the password is asked?
How does it work?
Protector runs as a background service consuming the negligible amount of memory and passively waits for the start of protected applications. Once the user clicks an icon to start such an application, the full-screen window is shown on top, asking for a password. If the user clicks Cancel or anyhow closes the window, the protected application is immediately sent to the background to save the data and then it’s process is terminated to make sure that it can’t be used without a password.
If free version available?
I plan to release a free version with limited functionality and standard user interface. Please send me an email if you wish to receive a notification once it will be released.
