Most of Android smartphones users lock their smartphone using pattern lock for better privacy. (Reason can be they have some 18+ Pics which they don’t want to show to their friends :P)

What is pattern Lock ??
The Pattern lock is type of lock which let you draw image by connecting circles which make a pattern. You can only open your mobile if your draw right pattern. In case you draw wrong pattern, you are aksed to redraw the right Pattern

If you are a android user and draw more then 20 times wrong pattern then your smartphone get locked.
