How to password protect TWRP recovery [Tip]

Team WinWhile there’s lots to love with tweaking Android operating systems there’s also a great deal of risk. Installing a custom recovery gives the user much more power than what they had with the stock recovery and often people who flash custom recoveries must perform some careful work with applying factory reset in between ROM installations and so on. It’s knowing what bad things can happen in TWRP Recovery that should make you think carefully before going ahead with any guide.

While there will always be an element of risk, it has been greatly reduced now, thanks to a password protected TWRP Recovery custom recovery. With our custom recovery now coming with a password protect option, you can make people enter a password before they can backup, restore, flashing files and any other feature found in Team Win’s TWRP recovery.
