What is AppLock?

AppLock is a simple tool that allows the user to create and put in a virtual lock on almost any Android element on our mobile device. It’s most basic use will be of protecting our apps, so no one can access or uninstall them; you can also protect pictures, videos, contacts, and messages, keeping you safe from any intruder.
This app works rather simply: the user must create an unlocking pattern associated to the app he wishes to protect, and from that moment it will be necessary to input that pattern so you can use the app. Even if another user tries to uninstall that application, a pop-up window with the block pattern will ask for the required pattern to unlock it.
The best feature of this app is that we can hide its icon on the home screen or app screen; thus, nobody will know that the users have this app installed and protecting his phone; only the owner will be able to see the hidden app after inputting a numeric code on his phone´s keyboard. Another feature of this app is called “Picture Safe”, which allows the user to store certain photos and videos inside a locked safe, which they can only open with their code.

With this utility you can lock and unlock apps according to the time of the day, meaning you will have the possibility to assign patterns that lock an app during the day and be accessible during nighttime, always according to how the user access to it, be it a place or time.

If you happen to forget your established pattern or code on your AppLock app, there are some ways to unlock it without having to reset your phone, risking the loss of your data. It is much recommended to the users to write down their pattern or code so they don’t happen to forget it and have to struggle to unlock your mobile device.

According to this, you can create profiles that you can activate and deactivate at any certain moment. For example, you can activate your working profile when you are in your office and don’t want any co-worker to spy your phone or access any app without permission or you can activate the home profile where almost every app is unlocked.

AppLock is a very interesting tool; thanks to it, any user can create an additional layer of security on their mobile terminals. With this app, you will never have to worry again when you lend your phone to a friend. Your photos, videos, documents and other apps will be safe; you will be the only one to access all the content on your phone.
