    App permissions

    Any app permissions necessary for LockMyPix to function properly will not be abused or otherwise used than intended.

     

    Passwordrecovery

    Your LockMyPix password is private and known to you only. LockMyPix does not save the password and does not know the password, but uses it to encrypt your important files. To restore your password, if you should forget it, you can deposit a e-mail address. LockMyPix then stores your password encrypted on our servers without an assignment to a LockMyPix data safe or the ability to create any inference. The specified email address is used exclusively for password recovery and will not be shared. You can deactivate and delete password recovery by e-mail at any time in the settings (from V. 2.7.5 or 4.5.4).
