Pinlock Feature Demoed on Ubuntu Touch

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

A new security feature for Ubuntu Touch has been demoed. 

Pinlock is, as the name suggests, a screen lock feature that requires a pin number to open. A password unlock is also available, though not shown.

The feature is shown to hide behind the Ubuntu Touch welcome screen and is used only when access to private data, such as in the Dash, is required.
