Increase the Number of Pattern Lock Draw Attempt on Android

If you are a security conscious Android smartphone user and using “Pattern” lock as a security lock to secure your handset, you may know that you will get only 5 attempts to draw the Pattern lock. If you draw a wrong pattern 5 times, you need to wait 30 seconds before attempting again. If you don’t like that ‘waiting’ behavior, you can increase the 5 attempt to 20. Here is how it is.
