TimedLock extension


Timed Lock
v0.1a (2015-12-22)

Security is not an all-or-nothing situation. But for your Kindle, the only "physical" security you can add is a user passcode that has to be entered when you wake your Kindle up from screensaver. The choices are thus no security, or entering your passcode every single time. The latter can become annoying very fast, e.g. if you just turned your Kindle off (or closed the magic cover) a second ago to talk to or interact with some people (think waiting room, train, plane, etc).

This extension tries to find a middle-ground by allowing you more fine-tuned control over your Kindle's passcode requirement. It basically supports two features:
  1. Only require passcode when device was off for a certain duration.
  2. Disable/enable passcode based on time of day, e.g. no passcode required at night when you are home, only during the day when you are out and about.

Security is a tricky situation. Whether you use either of these two features (or both) and what settings you put in, depends entirely on your specific situation and your compromises. Think clearly about it and remember that you use this extension on your own risk.

Please refer to the readme.txt inside the zip file for details on how to install and use this extension, also for important security reminders.

Nice work!

Why don't you make an entry in the KUAL Extensions index, and I will update the master list.

EDIT: Done and done

Thanks. I've done that (also for my other two extensions).
