How to activate Passcode Lock:
So you have downloaded Alfred and set up your old phones as Camera(s), but there is still a nagging worry that the burglars might take your Camera Phone(s) and erase all the footage. What can you do?
Don’t worry, we thought about it for you!
Alfred for Android 1196 comes with Passcode Lock, which is another dream-come-true for many Superheroes. Your account is, and will always be protected by your Gmail password. However, IF your house is ever broken into, or IF you have a roommate from hell, Passcode Lock will be an indispensable feature for you.
How does it work?
It’s simple. Passcode Lock allows you to lock your screen with your usual passcode/pattern lock while Alfred functions continuously, which means unless someone knows how to unlock your phone, nobody can mess with or delete your Motion Events. In the worst case scenario where your phone is taken or broken, the Motion Events that are already recorded will remain accessible and protected by your account.
Here is how you activate Passcode Lock. Please remember to set up your device’s passcode/pattern lock to take advantage of this feature:
- Find Camera Settings on your Camera:
- Go to Passcode Lock:
- Activate Passcode Lock:
- Alfred will remind you to set up your device’s password/pattern lock:
- Tap Save Power to dim and lock the screen:
Last but not least, to lock and unlock your device, please drag the yellow circle PAST the one on the right:
How to unlock your Camera device:
If you have an iOS Camera device, we suggest you turn on Guided Access. We would also like to remind you again NOT to press the power/home key after locking your screen. That could cause a world of problems!
In the worse case scenario, please follow these extra steps to make sure your information stays safe!
