Motorola Skip brings new level of authentication to Moto X


Face it, having one of those 3×3 dot security patterns on your Android is pretty cool. The problem, however, is that it can be quite a nuisance every time you just wanna check your notifications while at the office desk.

According to Motorola, the average person checks their phone nearly 40 times a day with power users doing it roughly 100 times a day. What’s the solution? Motorola believes the answer starts with the new Motorola Skip.

Skip is a thin, thumb-sized clip that pairs with your Moto X and unlocks it with a simple tap. Wear Skip on your shirt sleeve, shirt hem, belt loop — wherever it feels most comfortable. It’s fast, easy and secure. It provides all the benefits of a PIN without the hassle.

Rather than worrying about drawing the patter to unlock your phone or inputting a PIN, you simply tap your Moto X to the Skip dot. These stickers are essentially trusted zones for your Android, so feel free to place them in your office or on your end table.


The Motorola Skip will be sold in packs of three Skip dots and will be available for purchase through Also, the Skip will be offered for free in limited numbers with the purchase of Moto X through Moto Maker. Look for these in gray with a black accent immediately with other colors coming soon.
