The Picture Password feature is available on BlackBerry 10 as well as Android Priv and DTEK60 devices. It will allow you to unlock your device using a unique number and picture combination. It’s a simple to use, as all you do is move a grid to align a number over a specific secret location on a picture. You choose the number, secret location and picture.
Why would you use Picture Password? You are out and about and don’t want anyone to shoulder surf you and easily guess the PIN or password you enter to unlock your screen. By using Picture Password, it is difficult for another person to guess your picture password, even if the person is watching you unlock your screen.
To be able to use Picture Password, you will first need to set up a screen lock that uses either a password or a PIN. Enter your Picture Password incorrectly more than five times, your device will prompt you to enter the password or PIN to unlock the screen.
NOTE: Whenever you restart your Android device you will not be able to use Picture Password to unlock your device. You will have to use either your password or PIN to start your device.
Adoptable external storage provides support to designate your external microSD storage card as internal storage. Only HTC, Lenovo and the BlackBerry DTEK60 provide this Android Marshmallow only feature.
It’s worth noting that if you decide to format your microSD card for internal storage, it will format as EXT4* and encrypt it, so it will only be accessible on your device, as the SD card will no longer be visible.
Follow these simple steps to enable your microSD card for internal storage:
- Settings > Storage & USB
- Tap > SD card (this will under ‘Portable storage’)
- Tap > Menu (top right three vertical dots) > Settings
- You can choose to Eject, Format or Format on internal
- Choose > Format on internal
The microSD will be formatted to make it secure. After formatting, your SD card will only work on your device. It will also erase all data currently stored on the microSD card. To avoid losing any of your data, you should now consider backing it up.
- Tap > ERASE & FORMAT – depending on the type and size of card, formatting shouldn’t take long.
