  • We don't use colons above. Maybe decide for one style for consistency?

  • I guess we'll have to use colons above, because I think we need something here to separate the setting text from the explanation.

  • Actually, it doesn't matter. Feel free whatever you prefer. I don't mind colon here and not above.

  • Too late, I added it above. :-)

  • Alright, good to merge from my side.

### Use Mobile Data ###
You can control whether Briar uses mobile data. If you turn off mobile data, Briar will only use the internet when you're connected to Wi-Fi.
### Screen Lock ###
When you turn off mobile data, Briar will not connect to the internet
as long as you are not connected to a WiFi network.

### App Lock ###

To protect your privacy when other people are using your device, you can lock Briar without signing out. This prevents Briar from being used until you enter a PIN, pattern or password.
On recent devices, you can activate the app lock feature in the settings.
If the setting is available, but can't be activated (greyed out),
you need to set up screen security in your device settings first.
Briar uses the same PIN, pattern or password that you normally use to unlock your device, so this setting will be disabled (grayed out) if you haven't chosen a PIN, pattern or password yet. You can use your device's Settings app to choose one.
Additionally, you can set a **Screen lock inactivity timeout**
to automatically lock the app after it was not used for a certain amount of time.
<img src="assets/img/manual_app_lock_nav_drawer-cropped.png" alt="The main menu showing the 'Lock App' option">
When the screen lock setting is activated, a "Lock App" option will be added to Briar's main menu. You can use this option to lock Briar without signing out.

Once the feature was activated, an item **Lock App** will be added to the main menu.
### Screen Lock Inactivity Timeout ###

When the app is opened while locked,
you will need to enter your PIN, pattern or password to access it.
You can choose to lock Briar automatically when it has not been used for a certain amount of time.
