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?
Unlock File Type Restrictions for Bluetooth Transfers with Xposed
Bluetooth is one of the most conventional ways we transfer files from one device to another, and this is even more so with the integration of NFC technology in almost every device that’s been released in the past couple of years. And there are good reasons for this too–Bluetooth is convenient, relatively fast, energy efficient, and most important of all, can be found within any tech device of the past 10 years. With all its upsides however, it’s unfortunate that the one thing holding Bluetooth back is the restrictions on the file types that can be received, at least on the Android OS–a gripe which can be easily solved now with an Xposed module.
Developed by XDA Forum Member Massi-X, Bluetooth Unlock gets rid of this restriction on file types and allows you to receive any file type that you wish from your device to another. Okay, so possibly not every file type there may be in existence, but definitely a good proportion of what’s out there. This is so as the module enables you to select the types of files you want to receive or block from an extensive selection of file types sorted into neat categories such as Application, Audio, and Message to name a few.
Bluetooth Unlock is available in English, Italian, and Slovak, and Massi-X is welcoming any other translations if you would like to help out. So if you would like to check this module out, visit the original thread for more information and download.
