1. How To Unlock Lock Screen Android

Have you locked yourself out of your Android screen? While there are many Android hacks such as through the factory reset or other tools in a PC, this special little trick is the best Android hack for Android 5 Lollipop that uses Android’s own security bug to unlock your locked Android screen.

  • Drag the screen downwards and you’ll be asked for a password.
  • Paste the digits you had copied from your Android’s Emergency Dialer.
  • Repeat the process, while pressing the volume keys of your Android device until the camera app of your Android device is crashed.

Steps for encrypting your emails with this little Android hack:

  • Start by downloading the GPGTools installer for your operating system and install the program on your device.

While footage from FBI may not be accessible at the moment, but this Android hack can help you record any event by turning your Android smartphone into a surveillance camera.

Start by installing the IP Webcam app from Google Play Store. The Android app adopts a freemium model, so while you can download it for free, to access its premium features, you have to pay $3.99. The app allows you to access your camera on any platform with VLC player or web browser and stream videos inside WiFi network without internet access.

Once you launch the app and browse its settings, you can select the video preferences, effects and other aspects of the footage that you wish to see later on. In order to broadcast this footage, simply log in and register to the Ivideon. Start the snooping around by clicking on the Start Server button placed at the end of the app. To stream the footage anywhere, simply enter the IP address that you will get on your Android device and paste it into the address bar of the web browser of any desired device. The only limitation of using a phone as a security camera is the battery life.
