Applock is the most downloaded screen lock app. The developers of this utility claim that their application is the key to data security and guarantees the safety of your files and applications. Our modification will take the application to a new level, open up additional functionality and significantly increase the security of your device.
What is AppLock?
Applock differs from the competition in its improved performance, it is not as buggy as others, and it has great features that users can use with relative ease and comfort. It was voted one of the best free Android apps of 2019 by Android Authority .
When you first start the utility, you will be prompted to enter your email address and make the initial settings. The email address is required for the password recovery procedure. Your backup codes or unlock pattern order will be sent to your inbox. Once everything is ready, you will be taken to the main interface. From here, you can start blocking apps individually.
Key features of Applock
By default, Applock uses pattern lock, but you can change it to numbers. This is not really a security breakthrough, and I think it is more of a personal interest. However, digital lock is more secure than pattern lock (in our opinion). Anyway, if you want to take the easier route, you can install Applock on devices with fingerprint sensors.
Various profiles for blocking
This is another feature that we find interesting in this program. The application allows you to create multiple profiles, for example, your family members. Each of them has its own settings. For example, you can protect social media apps during work hours if you give your phone to your child.
So how does Applock block your apps?
Using digital or graphical code, Applock can impose restrictions on individual applications. When you click on them, you will need to enter the correct key to open them. If you need extra security, you can temporarily hide your apps from the home screen. Applock will try to coat the app icon so that it cannot be seen.
