    TimePIN lets you set the current time as your lockscreen PIN; never again worry about people guessing your PIN from those greasy fingerprints. You could also make the PIN more complex by mirroring, doubling, or reversing the time. Extra modifiers are available via an in-app purchase.

    This application simply allow you to set a lock pin on your phone. Yeah I know you can set pin lock without this app, but this make it a lot more cool and secure, actually it allows you to set a pin lock where the pin change constantly, once you enables it the pin that will unlock your phone will be the date or the time, you can reverse it, let say it's 16h12 your pin will be 1612, if you've enable reverse then it will be 1216. You get the idea so definitely go check it out for yourself.

    Reviewed in Some great apps you may not know. Yet.

    Excellent idea and just as good implementation. Change unlock code based on current time. For example if it's 12:31 PIN before one minute was 1230 but now it is 1231. To make things more complicated for your little sister who figured it out, it's possible to choose between different modifiers which are combinable - reverse, mirror, double and offset. The last one is available only on paid version (which is well worth it)

    Lock your Device [Pb / Ftc]: The app can set & periodically change your device locking PIN to a number corresponding to the currently time displayed. Your PIN can be different from one minute to the next, literally. [I'm sot sure how this works if Android's Drive Encryption is enabled, though.]

    Sets your LockScreen pin to whatever the current time is. Can be edited a bit with settings, but basically provides a constantly changing pin that your friends won't be able to guess or remember :p

    indefinite_denial: Man, it's such a great coincidence how the dev made this app just as I started searching for something like this. Basically it makes the pin for your lockscreen the time of your device. It also has modifiers to make it a little more secure. Check out the thread here if you haven't seen it.

TimePIN is a security and ease of use enhancing application. TimePIN sets your lockscreen PIN code to the current time or date resulting in an ever changing PIN that can not be shoulder surfed or repeated due to fingerprints on the screen. Modifiers allow you to morph the PIN, to further enhance security.

The persistent notification is a fix for the START_STICKY bug in recent versions of Android, this notification fixes the bug causing users to have to enter their pin twice. It will be removed as soon as a better solution is available. Use ghost mode to hide it.

On your first boot, you will have to enter the default PIN to unlock the device. This is not a bug, but a failsafe in the event that you forget your modifiers. It is documented here AND on the default PIN settings activity. Please stop reporting it as a bug, it isn't one and it won't be going away. It is for your safety.

12hour and 24hour clocks are both supported.

Modifiers:

(If no modifier is applied, and the time is 9:12, your PIN will be 0912)
Reverse - reverses the PIN. If the time is 11:24, your PIN will be 4211
Mirror - mirrors the PIN. If the time is 8:34, your PIN will be 08344380
Double - Doubles the PIN. If the time is 12:34, your PIN will be 12341234
Offset - Applies a user chosen offset to the PIN. If the time is 10:43, and your offset is -121, your PIN will be 0922.

The reverse, mirror and double modifiers are free, and no purchase is needed to use the application. The offset modifier and DatePIN features are available for purchase for $1.99, for all, for life.

For all non lockscreen purposes, and the first unlock after turning a device on, a user selected default PIN is used.

Please remember, if you get "locked out" (which shouldn't happen), reboot your device. Your first unlock will be your default PIN!
