YourKey Unlocking App for Android Devices Uses Instagram, Facebook and Personal Photos

YourKey™ (www.YourKeyApp.com), a photo-based personalized passcode app that incorporates photos from user’s device, Instagram® and Facebook®, is now available for download on Android™ devices from the Google® Play Store.

“The average smartphone user unlocks their phone over and over, often more than 100 times a day,” said YourKey Co-founder Jack Loop. “YourKey enlivens this no-longer-mundane routine by allowing users to place photos of friends, family, pets or even selfies right on their lock screen. Its personalized approach will make the unlocking experience more enjoyable for Android users all over the world.

“YourKey is the ultimate app for Android users to secure their device while truly customizing and individualizing their experience,” he said. “YourKey incorporates photos chosen by users right to their lock screens, increasing the security of their data while providing a truly personal and yet powerful utility.”

With YourKey, users select their favorite personal pictures from their device, Instagram or Facebook to create picture icons. Then, using these icons along with traditional alphanumeric icons, they create a unique 5-item passcode, which becomes the main unlock screen they see and touch every time they enter their Android device.

YourKey is now available worldwide as a free download directly from the Google Play Store. Additional information, including instructional videos and screen shots, is available at www.YourKeyApp.com.
