PLEASE READ: SECUREAPLUS MOBILE BETA SUGGESTION GUIDELINES
« on: December 19, 2017, 06:08:21 PM »
[31 January 2018 Update: Phase Two of the SecureAPlus Mobile Beta is Now Live!]

It's been awhile but we're finally moving on to the next phase of the SecureAPlus for Android Beta Program which marks the introduction of AppLocker to it's set of features to protect your phone.

The Beta is Now Open to Everyone

We initially started out in closed Beta to keep the initial testing to existing SecureAPlus users. With Phase Two, SecureAPlus for Android can now be accessed by anyone so you can now go about inviting your friends to give it a try.

Search for "SecureAPlus" at the Google Play Store or simply visit the following URL:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.secureage.secureaplus&hl=en

What's New:

AppLocker
Prevent applications of your choice from being accessed by unauthorized users via a passcode lock.

Updated UI with Animated Icons
User interface now incorporates updated SecureAPlus colors and new animated icons

Enhancements:

 - Added button to clear all apps that were previously added for AppLocker
 - AppLocker settings to define when the lock will be enabled (i.e. unlock until reboot, unlock until phone lock, etc.)

Known Bugs:

 - When scanning files using the "Scan File" feature, SecureAPlus crashes after taking a while on the loading page
 - Open recent tasks when AppLocker is showing will display after image of the AppLocker header title
 - Closing AppLocker prompt will also close SecureAPlus app if it is running in the background
 - Switching apps with AppLocker lock multiple times will occasionally crash SecureAPlus
 - Displaying of the app list is slow immediately after the unlock AppLocker page

All the basic rules from Phase One still applies (please refer below for a recap), but please refrain from reporting known bugs as the SecureAPlus Team is already actively working to fix them.

The SecureAPlus Team will be actively monitoring the Suggestions section throughout the Beta Program period.

To make this process as constructive and as orderly as possible, please take note of the following points:

Beta Program Rounds of Testing

The Beta Program will involve multiple rounds of testing. Each round will have a particular objective and scope. While we welcome Suggestions covering any aspect of the Beta Client, we will be prioritizing suggestions revolving those that are under the range of the current round.

Visit the News & Updates section to find out the current round of testing objective and scope.

Submitting a Suggestion

Open a new thread within the Suggestion section of the forum if you have a suggestion for the current round of testing/version of the SecureAPlus Beta client.

We advise following the naming convention below:

Round [insert current beta round of testing] Suggestion: [one-line summary of suggestion]

i.e., Round 1 Suggestion: Increasing the Font Size of Universal AV Scan Results

Describe the reasoning behind the suggestion in as much detail as possible. We can best consider your suggestion if you could highlight the following:

1. For problems with the current execution, illustrate scenarios where your suggestion would serve users better.

2. For additions/new features, illustrate how it adds to the value proposition and user experience of SecureAPlus

3. Possible examples from other software to support/illustrate your suggestion.

Adding to an Existing Thread

Before opening a new thread, Beta Testers should look through the Suggestions section for any open threads similar to your suggestion. It is highly recommended to instead add to the existing thread rather than opening a new one as this adds credibility to the idea and may provide synergy between ideas of other beta testers.

Merging of Duplicate Threads

The SecureAPlus team will be merging duplicate or inherently similar suggestion threads at its discretion. This is to facilitate and consolidate better constructive feedback between Beta Testers.

Granting of Points for the Beta Program

The SecureAPlus Team will be granting points to Beta Testers whose suggestions are submitted via the SecureAPlus Account Portal. Beta Testers need to submit the link to the Suggestion Thread using the submission tool provided. Additional comments to existing Suggestion threads are also accepted.

SecureAge Technology and the SecureAPlus team reserves the right to grant points based on the value of submission on a case to case basis. Please allow the team at least 48 hours to respond or issue the point after submission.

We hope that Beta Testers keep in mind the above points for consideration in submitting suggestions. We may need to update the above points based on the progression of the Beta, so we encourage to make it a habit to check on this sticky every time Beta Testers intend to submit a new suggestion.

We thank you for your time to read the considerations for submitting suggestions.

Good luck and happy testing!


Sincerest,

John
The SecureAPlus Team
