One of the most common questions we’ve heard is “does Cover work with my PIN code or security pattern?” The answer is yes! Check out this video to see what it’s like in action:
As you see, Cover integrates with Android’s PIN/pattern system to give you the right apps at the right time while still maintaining your phone’s security. If you have a security code on your phone and slide open an app from Cover, you’ll be prompted to unlock your phone before the app opens.
To get the best experience when using Cover with a security code, we recommend that you set a short timeout period on your code (e.g. 5 or 10 minutes). That way, you can still use Cover’s true “peek” feature without sacrificing much in the way of security.
