Contact Owner

Contact info on lock screen

Contact Owner is displays your (or a friend's) contact information on the "lock screen" of your device, so that if you happen to lose it the finder will know how to contact you. Select yourself (or your friend) from your list of contacts, then select which information you want shown and (optionally) customize your message. Contact Owner is a "fire and forget" tool: once you set it up, your contact information will keep being displayed even after restarting your device, as long as the application is installed.

    Permissions
    • run at startup
      Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.
    • modify system settings
      Allows the app to modify the system's settings data. Malicious apps may corrupt your system's configuration.
    • read your contacts
      Allows the app to read data about your contacts stored on your phone, including the frequency with which you've called, emailed, or communicated in other ways with specific individuals. This permission allows apps to save your contact data, and malicious apps may share contact data without your knowledge.
    • disable your screen lock
      Allows the app to disable the keylock and any associated password security. For example, the phone disables the keylock when receiving an incoming phone call, then re-enables the keylock when the call is finished.
    • modify or delete the contents of your SD card
      Allows the app to write to the SD card.
    • read phone status and identity
