Diary Security made Simple
Holding sensitive medical information in CPT makes Diary Security a valid concern. Our new Pattern Lock feature helps to control access to your Diary information, but without weighing the app down with cumbersome passwords or numerical codes. This feature is ideal for anyone having legitimate concerns about the confidentiality of their health information saved within the app.
It’s also perfect for moms and dads that let the little ones play on their phones by preventing inadvertent changes to your Pain Diary.
What is Pattern Lock?
What really differentiates this feature from other password or numerical code access systems is that it is so easy and quick to use. You don’t have to fool with a keyboard or numerical pad. And let’s face it. If diary security makes it hard to get into the app, you’re not going to use it. So we tried to make this as simple as possible.
Just use your finger to connect a series of points on the screen. The pattern that this traces out is your “password”. You can make the actual code as simple or as complex as you’d like.
If you suffer from arthritis or stiffness/pain in the hand, than this method of diary security is going to be much easier than typing out a password to get into the app.
Enabling Pattern Lock
To enable the Pattern Lock security, you need to go to the Settings tab, then choose Application Options, then Pattern Lock Setup. Follow the directions there to enable the diary security option. Once enabled, this is also where you will come if you want to disable the diary security.
Once enabled, the Pattern Lock screen will be displayed whenever the app is first launched AND whenever it comes out of the multi-tasking background. The correct pattern must be entered in order to gain access to the app, so don’t forget your pattern code!
