  • Publication number: 20200334368
    Abstract: A portable terminal device (1) sets a security level for each application in accordance with position, and stores the level in a memory (102). The security level determines whether each application is displayed or made executable on a display portion (114a) in locked state and unlocked state. A control unit (101) refers to the security level and determines the application displayed on the display portion (114a) in accordance with position information acquired by a position information acquisition unit (GPS reception unit) (104), and makes executable the application selected by the user. Thus, the portable terminal device (1) offers user-friendliness while ensuring security strength.
