How to easily bypass Android liveness check [Video]


Friday 03rd of August 2012 / talkandroid.com
 As much as I love Android, I’ve always felt the face unlock feature that was introduced in Ice Cream Sandwich is more of a gimmick than anything. While it’s cool to show off to non-Android users, it isn’t practical and can be bypassed rather easily if one were to try. In my opinion, using the pattern or pin unlock system provides a faster and safer way to lock your phone from others.//In Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Google developers attempted to make the face unlock feature more secure by adding a “liveness check” feature. The problem with face unlock was that one could easily use a picture of the person to unlock the phone. With liveness check enabled, the owner is required to blink for the phone to unlock. This adds another element into the security of face unlock which fixes the issue of simply using ones picture.Of course, it never takes too long before people figure out a way to bypass that as well. The YouTube video below, uploaded by idaka82, shows a group of guys quickly showing you how to do just that. They simply took a picture and hastily phot

Screen Off/Lock and No Lock


Monday 01st of August 2011 / androidforums.com
I posted this on Android Central as well. There was a response but no description on how he got No Lock to work. For the life of me I cannot get screen off and lock and no lock to work for me on the Photon. Both work fine on my evo, evo 3d. Screen off and lock is just an app that allows you to turn your screen off and lock the phone by clicking an icon vs hitting the power button. No lock is an app that allows you to turn off your lock screen and lets you turn on (wake up) your phone by clicking the volume rocker vs hitting the power button. I only can get Screen off and lock to take me to my lock screen (if no lock is disabled), or it does nothing at all (if no lock is disabled)? I can get get No lock to bypass the lock screen but I cant seem to wake up the phone ever by hitting the volume buttons.? I have tried various different screen off/lock apps and no locking apps to no avail. Could this be an issue with Motoblur? Thanks in advance.

How to bypass lock screen in Cyanogenmod 7.2


Monday 18th of June 2012 / android.stackexchange.com
I set up my phone to use a gesture based unlock, and told it to hide the unlock button. Now the gesture isn't working and I can't get past the lock screen. For the standard Android lock screen, there is a feature whereby if you enter the wrong pass code 5 times, you can press a button to enter the username and password of your Android account to reset the lock screen. Is there any way to do this, or any other way to bypass the lock screen on Cyanogenmod 7.2? I have adb shell access to the device.

Please Help I Have been Ripped Off I believe - Page 3


Sunday 11th of March 2012 / droidforums.net
I found something that might work. It's called Screen Lock Bypass and according to this article:The Screen Lock Bypass Android app is an application which allows users to unlock the lock patterns or PIN wherein the devices doesn’t provide option to reset your password using the Google Account.But the important question is how will you install this application on your phone? It can be done by login into the Android Market on your PC or laptop and installing this app by transferring using the USB cable and this application will work to remove or reset your PIN/pattern which is a temporary lock to your device. This application will bypass the locked screen all the time when you reboot your device and thereby it will allow users to take the backup of the data present.That is assuming he can connect the phone to his pc okay. If it works like it says ("This application does not remove or reset your pattern/PIN, it only temporarily disables the lock screen so you can access your device and backup your data before resetting it.") it might enable him to get to the reset area.M

security - Is a PIN lock screen inherently more or less secure than an app lock program?


Tuesday 21st of February 2012 / android.stackexchange.com
The two ways I see to secure an Android phone is through a PIN lock screen or through an app lock program (Password is too inconvenient and pattern is insecure for various reasons). The lock screen has the advantage of keeping someone from the phone altogether, but an app lock program can allow me to use basic functionality while locking the apps that I choose such as Email or Package Installer. Is one option easier to hack/bypass than another? Let's assume that the App Lock program has a helper app that prevents it from being killed (although how well such an app works is worthy of being discussed in an answer - point being it takes a little more work than simply going to task manager and killing it). I am primarily concerned about data on the phone. I know that ultimately I cannot rely on either method to secure the phone indefinitely, but to only secure it long enough for me take various actions such as remote wipe, change Google password, Exchange password, etc...I'm running Gingerbread 2.3.6. For what it's worth it is rooted and has ClockWordMod recovery.

Bypass Pattern lock when call gets answered


Tuesday 03rd of August 2010 / droidforums.net
Hi I was poking around youtube about android stuff and I found a video showing how even if your phone is locked when a call comes in and the call gets picked up all one would have to do is press the back button to get into the phone. I tried it on my phone and it really does bypass the pattern lock. Is there a fix out there for this. I think it's a major security risk what if someone loses there phone.

Nexus 5 security questions re pattern lock and encryption


Tuesday 14th of January 2014 / androidforums.com
Hi All,I just got my first Android phone, a Nexus 5 and I love it. It has the latest updates. Its not rooted and I have no plans to root. I have a complicated pattern lock using lots of dots. I have some quick security questions.I googled "how to bypass pattern lock on nexus 5" and found some pages that appear to detail some reasonably easy ways to bypass the pattern lock. So it appears that if my phone was stolen any reasonably good geek could bypass my pattern lock and see all my files. Is that true?Anyone encounter problems with encrypting their Android phone or Nexus phone? I'm thinking of doing it. I've already install about 20 apps. Will encrypting the phone cause problems? Or is the Android full phone encryption system very stable and reliable? Approx what % of Android users encrypt their phones? Very few? Most?I'm now exploring AndroZip to encrypt my few files that need security. So far it looks OK.Thanks!Advait
