AppLock is a useful tool that allows us to put a virtual lock on practically any element of our Android. The most basic thing will be to protect our applications so that nobody can access or uninstall them. We can also protect photos, videos and even contacts and messages.
The operation of the application is very simple. The user will have to create an unlock pattern associated with the application they want to protect. From that moment on it will be necessary to enter a said pattern to use that application. Even if another user tries to uninstall that app, a window with the lock pattern will stop them.
More About App Lock
The best thing about the application is that we can even hide its icon. So that no one knows that we have it installed and only we can see it by typing a code on the phone’s keypad.
Another interesting feature is the so-called ‘Photo Vault’, which allows us to keep photographs secret that only we can open.
With this utility, you can block or unblock apps depending on the time of day. You will have the possibility of assigning patterns that make an application block in the morning. It can be accessible at night, always depending on the use that makes of it and the time and place. In this sense, you can create different profiles to activate or deactivate at a specific time. For example, activate your work profile when you are in the office. Do not want any colleague to gossip about certain tools, or activate the home profile if you want more freedom.
AppLock is a very interesting tool, thanks to users who can add an additional layer of security to their phones. With it, we will never have to worry about leaving the terminal for a friend again. Our photos, videos, documents, files and other applications will be safe and secure.
