New TimeLock PRO app: Secure photo,video,notes and data vault hiding in an alarm clock.

June 19, 2014
Protectstar Inc. today releases its newest security app, TimeLock PRO for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. No one will have the idea that there is a highly secure and protected safe ingeniously hiding in an alarm clock.The app allows Apple iOS device owners to securely store photos, videos, notes and files, inside a data vault, where all contents are encrypted using powerful 256-bit AES algorithms.

Constantly worrying about the security of sensitive files in iOS devicesis enough to drive people crazy, after all it is impossible to keep a constant close eye on all mobile devices to make sure it is not going in to the wrong hands. It is fair to say that almost every person has something in their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch that they would like to keep private, secure from other people. There has long been a need for an app that is not as obvious and efectively able to hide all the information that needs to remain hidden to be really secure.

The new TimeLock™ PRO app is the most efective and unique security app available right now. It is not only a timeless clock with an alarm function, but also a high security vault for your personal photos, notes and documents. The vault itself is completely invisible, hidden in the design of the clock.

This is truly an ingenious way of hiding information in plain sight by using the latest security technologies TimeLock™ PRO keeps all pictures and videos militarily secure, because the entire contents of the vault is encrypted with the strong 256-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) algorithm.

Users can easily set a six-digit passcode using the hours, minutes and seconds hands of the clock. After setting the personal passcode, the user needs to simply confirm it with the inconspicuous hands button in the center of the clock, to open the safe. The vault can be closed by simply shaking the Apple device.

In case the Apple device is stolen, users do not need to worry about the protection of the photos, notes, videos and files stored in TimeLock™ PRO because the Self-destruction feature can be activated which will automatically delete all saved data in it after 5 incorrect passcode entries.

But TimeLock PRO can do more: With the integrated note feature, users can write highly secure notes directly in the vault and with the new voice memo feature it is possible to record personal voices memos.

"TimeLock PRO is the world’s first unique security app for iOS and Android releases and we know that protecting our customers data is more important today than ever before." commented Chris Bohn of Protectstar Inc.

The universal app requires iOS 6 or higher.
