What’s the No. 1 reason people don’t lock their smartphones? Survey says: it’s a pain in the ass. That’s not from any actual survey, scientific or otherwise, but it’s the answer I’m willing to bet that most people give for leaving their devices unsecured. Clicking a button and swiping an icon across the screen? Sure, that’s fine. But entering a certain pattern on the touchscreen, or using a password? That’s an extra step that many, if not most, people are unwilling to make. Thankfully, Android developers have been great about making the platform more user friendly. One area where we could see developers make headway is in device security. There is already a fingerprint recognition engine on the Motorola Atrix, and now, from Visidon, comes a face recognition application lock program. More than just an app, it’s a glimpse into the future of our mobile security.
