From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen.

New Feature for “Donate to Me” Gives Credit Where Credit is Due
On XDA, thousands of developers contribute their work to the community without asking for anything in return. For a while now XDA has given members the ability to add a “Donate to Me” badge under their that links directly to their PayPal account. While “donations” are never required, they are a great way to say Thank You if you’ve benefited from a developer’s work here on XDA, even if you’re offering just a small amount. Today we’ve added a little piece of functionality to make life easier for those that accept donations. Now, when you hit “Donate to Me”, the receiving member will see your PayPal email (like before), but also your XDA username, and the thread URL that spurred the donation. We did this because some developers want to be able to thank those that donate to them.
Thanks again to everyone that contributes development work to the community!
