Almost all Android smartphones provide their users with the basic security functions such as the ability to set a password to their phone’s lock screen but lack more advanced security features such as password protecting internal phone apps such as photos, inbox, facebook messenger etc. By adding this extra layer of security to your smartphone, your fear of anyone else other than you accessing the apps will be gone. There are many apps available on the google playstore that allow you to password protect your apps but here on this article I will be discussing my top 10 favourite apps to make your phone more secure by password protecting your apps.
This was the first app I came across when hunting for a App to password protect my Android Apps and after using it, I didn’t need to search for any other applock as this app contained everything I needed. No doubt it is the best as it has a user base of over million people using it and also supports many languages so you won’t need to worry if you’re weak at English. It can lock almost everything and also can prevent others from taking incoming calls or un-installing apps with the advanced version. (AppLock advanced protection)
It also asks you for a working email, so when you forget your passcode you can reset it easily with the help of email. The app is worth buying as with the premium version you get access to the photo and video vault which is very useful.
What makes this app great is the fact that it’s very simple to use and also gets the job done easily. It allows you to password protect almost anything you want it too. But what makes this app unique from others is the fact that it rings a Alarm if someone keeps getting the password wrong continuously.
It allows you to password protect any app by pin code or pattern on landscope/potrait mode whatever you wish. It is a great alternative to the other app locks as it offers more features as well.
What makes this app unique as compared to other App Locking apps is the ” Observer mode ” which captures a photo from the front camera automatically if someone gets the password incorrect several times. Apart from that, it provides you with all the basic security functions required and allows you to password protect your apps by pin code, pattern or gesture.
What makes this app unique as compared to other apps is that you can protect apps through facial recognition as well as pincode just incase your phone fails to recognize your face properly. Make sure to capture your face from different angles so your face can be recognized easily. If not, just use the alternative password you set to unlock the app simply!
There’s more to the app than the name suggests. This app locker provides advanced features such as being able to password protect ” Uninstall ” so no one other than you can un-install any app on your phone, the ability to password protect your SD card along with Incoming calls and much more.
As the name suggests, it’s a smart app locker which allows you to password protect your files with a pin/pattern. If someone gets your password incorrect many times, it will take a photo from the front camera automatically and be sent to your email (the one you assigned during registration). What makes this app unique is the fact that you can trick the person into thinking there is a fault in the locked app by deliberately showing a error and they won’t know the app is locked.
This app allows you to password protect your conversations (whatsapp, skype, snapchat, inbox, email etc), incoming/outcoming calls along with the ability to password protect your notes so that no one can access them.
This app provides many features allowing you to trick people into believing the apps are not locked so you won’t be forced to give the password. Also features a stealth mode where it hides itself from the launcher so no one will even know the app locker is installed!
It is one of the most trusted and downloaded app locker on Google playstore. It provides the user with all basic security functions, but what makes it unique from other apps is that it allows you to password protect apps during a specific time such as office hours or when you’re home etc.
