MazeLock: Add An Extra Level of Security To Your Symbian Touch Phone

MazeLock Standby Screen 168x300

Adding an extra level of security to your symbian running mobile phones becomes easy when the phone is touch enabled. Taking advantage of the availability of touch interface ThinkChange has developed an app that gives your mobile phone added security. MazeLock, a mobile application, once installed replaces the standby lock screen with a completely different screen and asks for a touch based lock pattern which becomes very difficult to guess for possible thieve.

MazeLock eats up approximately 650 KB on your phone memory and the working is pretty basic but very powerful. All you need to do is set a touch based unlock pattern by swiping finger on the screen in a particular pattern. Once you do so the next time you lock your device MazeLock’s standby screen appears instead of the usual Nokia’s proprietary screen and a 3×3 matrix appears on which you have to repeat the unlock pattern as set before. Besides the extreme usability, the things I like about MazeLock are:

  1. Ability to change the background of the standby screen.
  2. Compatibility with lock applications for eg. nUnlock, SPB Mobile Shell’s lock app, etc.
  3. Simple but intuitive home-screen.
MazeLock Screen Bug 168x300

Reporting bug showing missed call notifications (there isn't any!).

Other than a basic reporting bug in Mazelock standby screen (refer screen shot on the right), I found it to be very useful application. It’s usefulness further increases when your mobile phone contains confidential data and is in a hostile environment accessible to unknown people. Moreover, the “Free” tag attached to this app is a blessing in disguise for those looking for extra security for their mobile phones.

ThinkChange’s MazeLock is available for Nokia 5228, 5230, 5233, 5235, 5250, 5530, 5800, N97, N97 mini, X6, C5, C6, C7, N8; Samsung GT i8910 Omnia; Sony-Ericsson U1 Satio, U5 Vivaz and U8 Kanna. You can download MazeLock for Free directly from ThinkChange MazeLock web-page or by downloading it directly on your mobile phone by pointing your mobile phone’s browser to http://symbian.thinkchange.mobi/

    You can change the background image from application too. And can use your own custom image.
