You’ve been asking how to deal with the fact that Flipper will store your secrets like U2F token and house keys. What if Flipper gets lost?

Well, no problem! For this case, we made a locking feature. You can lock Flipper and unlock it with the special pass-combo, like in good old fighting games (for example, →↑↑←↓↑↓). Users can set a pass-combo of any length, and all functions will be blocked until the combo is entered, including firmware flashing.

Additionally, it will be possible to hide some of the Flipper’s functions behind the secret joystick shortcut. And until this combination is entered, Flipper is just a harmless cute Tamagotchi with a bunch of cool mini-games and nothing else.
