Unlockar strives to become a preferred lock screen application across all segments of the society. To achieve this, it is necessary to give our users an option to interact with our application in their preferred language. Currently, user can choose between English and Hindi as their preferred language. We will soon add more languages along with English and Hindi.
In case, you need to switch your Unlockar account to a new mobile device, you can do that by simply uninstalling the application from your older phone and install & login to the new device where Unlockar has never been used before. All your previous account balance and transactions will be updated to this new device where you have logged in now. Please note this will happen only in the cases where no other Unlockar account was ever used in your new mobile device.
In case, some other Unlockar account was already active on your new device, you will not be allowed to login to the new device with your previous Unlockar account. This is done keeping in mind that only one Unlockar account is used per device. You can always write to email@example.com with your Unlockar account details (Registered email ID, phone no.) and device details (Mobile Brand, Device Name, IMEI no., Network Provider) if you are seeking any help in this regard.
There is no utility of logout functionality in Unlockar. Users can temporarily close the application for a few hours by using "Menu->Settings->Turn Off Lock Screen" feature. If one wants to permanently close the application then one can easily uninstall the app from one's mobile device.
