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?
Scilor’s wifi Penetrate, available for Window Mobile
A few days ago, you might have read our article about an application called Penetrate which is available for Android devices. The tool had the ability (as its name suggests) to penetrate wireless networks and obtain the key for that network.
This time, xda member scilor has made this app available for Windows Mobile users. The app remains the same with similar features as those found in its Android counterpart. A very useful tool indeed for network management as well as any other uses that you can find

SciLor’s Wifi Penetrate is a tool for administrators and other people related to network security. This tool provides a database/calculator for many standard Wifi passphrases of today’s wireless network routers.
You may use it to check your own network, or it make you skip looking in the manual for the standard password.
Its intention is to provide a Windows Mobile Application similar to Penetrate.
Thanks fly out to deovferreira who shared his database and some code from the Android App

If you are interested in the development of the app, please follow the original thread.
