On the Arnova 10 g2 I cant find any settings that I can use to bring up some sort of logon screen at start up to protect the tablet with either a pin or password, I have gone into security settings but all that is in there is a password for memory card etc.

Is this available on this gingerbread firmware or would I have to install a third party app.

I was wanting something similar to the windows logon.

Thankyou

Older devices offer this feature under Location & security settings on the device.

Unfortunately it seems there is no such thing on the Arnova 10 G2.

 

You can have a look for a lock application on Appslib or other Marketplaces.

strange how a more modern device goes backwards with security, nowadays security is key and a selling point.

Anyway than you for your quick reply I will have a look on the Applib for a 3rd paty app [Image Can Not Be Found]

I installed lockbot pro, although it does not lock the screen when you boot the Arnova 10 g2 it does work by pressing the power button when the tablet is on. Great looking program that seems to work great so far. I have set the Android honeycomb screen theme, when you unlock that you can have the option of a pin code or pattern swipe. Very nice program[Image Can Not Be Found]

I've tryied it too but it's easily bypassable…I need to ativate the android's one…I was able to choose between the security mode (key, pattern, pin, none) with "MySettings" widget (which made the config avaible in the android config), avaible from android market, but unable to make it working[Image Can Not Be Found]. Looks like the configuration app isn't complete or that some so (shared libraries) are missing…damn…I need it. [Image Can Not Be Found]

 

Thx to anybody who will discover something else! [Image Can Not Be Found]

I have the same issue but a different need. I want to sync my work email, calendar, etc (exchange server). We have a security policy which means all devices must have PIN lock to synch. So I've set up the account, was asked to set a PIN and all worked for a bit. Since a reboot, sync has stopped working.

The "screen lock" section is visible within Location and security menu but my Arnova 9 G2 is not prompting for PIN (I'm presuming this is why syncing has stopped).

I'm pretty sure there's a config item missing - if synch worked initially I can only presume all of the required packages are installed.

Any ideas?
