Moto Secure is an Android application designed for the safety and privacy of your Moto smartphone. This utility is powered by Motorola’s Thinkshield, a security platform that protects your phone from malware, phishing, and other threats.
One of the key features of this app is the Secure Folder. This is a special folder where you can store your sensitive data, similar to Hide Photos. You can hide financial utilities, digital wallets, email accounts, photos, videos, and documents. The entry is protected by a PIN code, and only you can access it.
Moreover, you can use the Disguised Mode function. It allows you to change the names and icons of the apps or files in the Secure Folder. This way, you may hide utilities behind icons and labels that only you understand, for example, a calculator, a game, or a note app.
Another option that Moto Secure offers is Network Protection. This feature automatically notifies you when it detects a hotspot or Wi-Fi-related security issue, including an unsecured and spoofed network, or a malicious app.
Lock screen and PIN code
Moto Secure also enhances your lock screen security. No one can deactivate your phone’s mobile network, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or airplane mode, or access your security settings, without unblocking your phone first. This can help you prevent losing your phone or having it stolen.
If you use a PIN code, you may be worried about someone spying on you and memorizing the pattern of the numbers you press. Moto Secure solves this problem by introducing the PIN Pad Scramble option, which shuffles the numerical layout of your phone’s entry screen. This way, no one can guess your password just by looking at your fingers.
