Setting Security On The Synched App (Android)



Date: 8/15/2013

So you know how important security is, especially on your cell phone, which is why you signed up for the Vigilant Vault in the first place. Well this app understands that and allows you to set up a pin code to better protect who is getting access to your files on your android. We don’t want people stealing photos of your precious Labrador-Daschund now, do we?     


  1.  From the main page of the app, bring up the list by clicking the list function on your phone.


  1. Click on “settings”


  1. Scroll down to the “Security” area, there you will see “Require Pin”. Click the box next to it



  1. Enter your new pin and re-enter the pin again and hit “OK”



*You have successfully added a Security Pin to the App*


Note: To remove the Security Pin, Simply uncheck the box, enter your current pin and hit “OK”


Note 2: There are few other options when you have a Security Pin on the account too, “Pin Idle Timeout” and “Wipe Data After Failed Pin Attempt”

            Pin Idle Timeout: This is the amount of time that the app will be allowed to run in idle before prompting for the security pin again

            Wipe Data After Failed Pin Attempt: If you fail to enter the correct pin “X” amount of times it will erase the host information making it as if you had just freshly downloaded the app off the market.

                        *All data uploaded to the Vault will still be on the Vault*
