New smartphone app brightens up lock screens and makes them potentially more secure

Unlocking your phone is about to get a lot more fun with the launch of Sanrio’s new Mr. Men and Little Miss Lock Screen App.

IconLogin Limited teamed with Sanrio are on the licensed login app, using Mr. Men and Little Miss characters to delight fans and smartphone users.

“The Mr. Men and Little Miss Lock Screen makes you smile when you unlock your phone”, says Egita Di Filippo from Sanrio. “This innovative App is a wonderful way for our fans to enjoy the Mr. Men and Little Miss characters by personalising their devices with our iconic characters.”

The picture-based Android app starring characters with personalities from Mr. Men and Little Miss is fun and easy to use and allows fans to use their favourite characters, instead of a numerical keypad and pin code.

The free app is based on the idea that pictures are fun and much easier to remember than numbers. It is also more secure than using a traditional keypad because the pictures appear in a different order each time, instead of a static layout like most other keypads. When the correct four characters are chosen in the same order the device is unlocked.

Schehrezade Davidson of IconLogin added: “We are delighted to produce an App for Sanrio using such wonderful characters that are known worldwide. Seeing them will put a big smile on everyone’s face whenever they unlock their device - it is like getting a mini-hug.”

The app is available from the Google Play Store, initially available in EMEA.
