It may seem completely absurd and yet it is possible to earn money just by unlocking your Android smartphone. You do not believe in it ? Follow the guide, we will explain everything to you..
Applications that pay you
As you will see, the principle is extremely simple. You download the Locket app available for free from the Google Play Store. Once installed, it will transform the lock screen of your Android phone into an advertising panel . Part of the money spent by brands to place their ads on your screen will then be redistributed.
Obviously we are talking about a few euros, do not imagine being able to make a fortune with this system. History to discourage the clever little ones who would try to spend their day unlocking their screen , the system will not allow you to earn more than 3 cents per hour. As you can see it is not huge..
Still, it's always nice to receive money, especially by making such a harmless gesture. Indeed, what could be simpler for a smartphone user than to unlock their screen. The euros collected will allow you to reimburse part of your mobile subscription.
How to use Locket?
Obviously you will have to start by downloading the application. Then create an account by entering your credentials. Then when unlocking your phone, you will have the choice between displaying the home screen of your phone or viewing an advertisement . The latter could take the form of a short video sequence, a reduction coupon for a store or a link pointing to a site..
We don't like less
In order to help advertisers to better target users based on their profiles, the company in charge of developing the application will ask you to answer a history questionnaire to find out more about you. If you have chosen to register via Facebook, the application will have access to some of your personal data. It's up to you to see if the game is worth the effort for barely a few euros per month.
The Locket application seems to have disappeared from the Play Store. It is therefore no longer possible to install it and take advantage of the advertising system on its unlock screen. Be aware, however, that there are other alternatives for earning money from your smartphone. I am thinking in particular of commercial data collection applications like Clic and Walk, which is very popular in France.
