Droid Lockscreen bypass
Security Flaw Makes It Easy To Bypass Verizon Droid Screen Lock
Read an article today that the Droid lockscreen can be pretty easily bypassed. While it does bother me a little bit, I would assume this will be fixed by the time we get the 2.1 update. Can anyone with the 2.1 leak install or any N1 users verify this?
While I'm on the subject of security, does anyone have any recommendations on apps to get. I.E., how to track a stolen phone, make sure sensitive data is safe, etc. I've read up a little bit on it on the boards, but was hoping for a fresh points of view.
/Sorry to post 2 questions back to back, but I've just now grown the cajoles to get more involved in the forums.

For a security app I use wavesecure. According to the devs, if you download the app before Jan 31 (because it's in Beta right now) you get a free lifetime subscription. I haven't had to use it in an emergency (such as losing my phone) but I did play around with it and was able to both track and lock my phone remotely. It also has an option to remotely wipe your phone, but I didn't try that - for obvious reasons LOL. You might check it out and see if it does what you want. It seems to be good for what I want.
