From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Massive Xposed Module Collection
You’ve most likely already heard about XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s incredibly versatile Xposed Framework. We’ve talked about it quite a few times here on the XDA Portal, starting with a primer on its versatility and power and continuing to quite a few articles covering the plethora of modifications that the framework enables.
With the ease of use and added safety that the framework enables, it’s no wonder that the framework is so popular. However, because of the extremely large number of modules available, it’s sometimes a bit difficult to find exactly the ones you want. Wouldn’t it be great if someone created a compilation thread of some of the various tweaks that the modification enables? Well, somebody has, and that’s Senior Member cities516.
Cities516’s list covers dozens upon dozens of Xposed module modifications, all categorized by supported platform, as well as modification category. The list begins hierarchically with ROM compatibility (either All ROMs, AOSP-based, Sense-based, TouchWiz-based, or Xperia-based). Within each category, the modules are listed based on modification type. For example, in the All ROMs category, Security modules are lumped together, as well as various other categories of modifications.
While this list naturally cannot possibly contain every single Xposed module in existence, it more than likely has quite a few modifications that may be of interest to you. To get started, head over to the compilation thread and download to your heart’s content. The list is being constantly updated with new and exciting modules, so be sure to check back frequently!
