We all love our smartphones and other gadgets. To keep their smartphones safe from unwanted usage by other people, people generally use various methods of locking the screen. It is a nice practice but it can also cause you some issues.

For example, you missed your phone somewhere and a nice person found it. But since the phone is locked, he is not able to contact any person on your "quick dial" to contact them and inform about this issue. That person will have to wait until you or someone call on your phone. So, it would be nice to have some information available about you as the phone owner on the lock screen of the phone.
